Catching Snowflakes

Catching Snowflakes is a collection of poems and paintings that were born on stormy days in the cold frigid winters of Upstate New York. They try to capture the beauty and serenity in the many shades of winter. However occasionally, just like the snowflakes, they drift and land in unexpected places—sometimes settling on a surprising idea or a strange emotion or an unheralded perspective. This book is meant to be a cosy read and is filled with white winter’s charm. It is for people that love winter and want to relive it, out of season - for just a little while (as I often do). It is also for people who have never seen snow-covered winters and want to glimpse it from the comfort of their warm couches. So, fill your cups with hot chocolate or warm spiced tea, and let’s go catching snowflakes.

Catching Snowflakes

But here are some that lingered, that stayed with me. These snowflakes refused to melt on my breath and disappear at my fingertips. I'm throwing them up in the air, everywhere. And they're yearning, yearning for you to catch them.

A snowflake is symbolic of a moment, trapped and frozen in time. Each snowflake has its own imprint, like lives wrapped in laughter and joy, in grief and sorrow, unique, chaotic and beautiful moments that we are unable to recreate, for no two are the same.Snowflakes taste of nostalgia, laced with bittersweet notes of waxy lemons and orange blossom honey. There's no feeling quite like catching snowflakes, whether they're melting on your tongue, clustered in the palm of your hand or preserved somewhere safe, somewhere only we know.Like white winter butterflies arcing across silver skies and racing towards a fluorescent red sun, they are gone too soon. But here are some that lingered, that stayed with me. These snowflakes refused to melt on my breath and disappear at my fingertips. I'm throwing them up in the air, everywhere. And they're yearning, yearning for you to catch them.

It is 1941 in Lidice, Czechoslovakia, and sixteen-year-old Katarina is overflowing with excitement for the day ahead. As she opens the birthday gift her father has left for her, Katarina gasps in wonderment as she gazes at the tiny, carved heart intertwined in a vine of roses. Despite the threat of Nazi occupation that constantly hangs over her Czech village, Katarina is looking forward to her birthday party with great anticipation. But when her dream of a grand day is squashed, all Katarina wants to do is escape. Seventeen-year-old Josef is a young scholar who knows that tradition dictates that marriage be arranged for him. As a member of one of the few Jewish families living in Lidice, Josef just wants to survive in an intolerant world of hate and prejudice. But when he sees the beautiful Katarina reading in a corner of the town square by herself every day, he cannot resist her magnetic pull. He finally approaches her, and the teenagers soon realize they are meant to be together, despite the danger lurks in the shadows. The Death of a Rose is the unforgettable historical tale of two young people who risk everything for love during the Nazi occupation of their tiny village.

He flips houses. She flips hearts… Independent contractor Garrett Brown hopes to survive Christmas in Last Stand, Texas, without too much fuss. Not interested in the rancher lifestyle, he plans to flip the house he inherited on Cottonwood Ranch and move onto his next project. Little Cody, the nephew he’s raising, needs stability, and he’s got a home waiting for them in California. The last thing Garrett needs is to become attached to anyone—or any place—or to get involved with silly Christmas festivities. Kindergarten teacher Nicole Russell adores Christmas and is counting on the holiday to get her through her recent at-the-altar break up. Tired of pitying looks from the townsfolk, she decides to chair the Honeysuckle Holiday Fundraiser. When she reaches out to the new owner of Cottonwood Ranch, the perfect venue site, she expects cooperation, not stonewalling. Undeterred, Nicole makes her case with persuasive arguments that the too-handsome stranger in town cannot dodge and they strike a bargain. Nicole and Garrett are at odds, but their holiday pact and the power of Christmas may change both of their lives forever.
