Hi everyone!

Karen Glosser here with my final dispatch. It has truly been a pleasure spending this month with you as your Creators & Innovators newsletter host. Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to learn a little more about me and the work I’ve done.

For this final newsletter, I want to provide you with a photo essay. These pictures come from my collection “Winter Dreams.” I hope they bring you joy and solace as we trek into February.

Winter Dreams…

Evergreen boughs blanketed with snow,
Bare, sculptural branches of sleeping trees,
A quiet snowfall that hushes the world…

Join me on a visit to the wintry western New York woodlands as experienced through my lens, with a few brief words, often scribbled in a notebook at the time I created the image.

The wonder of snow-

Flakes fall

The trees and I find peace.

And now I leave you with an excerpt of one of my favorite poems by romantic era poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley:

And, by the incantation of this verse,

Scatter, as from an unextinguish'd hearth
Ashes and sparks, my words among mankind!
Be through my lips to unawaken'd earth

The trumpet of a prophecy! O Wind,
If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

from “Ode to the West Wind”

I wish each of you a wonderful happy winter and a beautiful upcoming spring!

- Karen
