A fresh snowfall on a lake is a wonderfully blank canvas —

A winter stage of sorts — if you’ve got the right perspective — and I do.

From my 17th floor office window overlooking Lake Normandale, I can watch the sun both rise and set for a certain number of weeks in the year.   And in the precious hours of winter daylight I am a skybox spectator at a dynamic art show in the snow.
