I have previously expressed my appreciation for “random acts of art.” As most of us will agree, Mother Nature always has—and always will be—the greatest, most thoughtful, and most innovative artist. And while human art is only a faint echo, a pale imitation of nature’s, it can be extraordinarily beautiful, mentally stimulating, or simply fun.
With winter solstice upon us, I’m sharing some seasonal “random acts of art” I have encountered in recent years, both natural and man-made. Whether we like winter or can’t wait for it to give way to spring, if we interrupt our hibernation occasionally and venture outside to brave the cold, we are bound to find—or, by heeding our inner child’s impulse to play with snow, even contribute to—creations great or small that can help put a smile on our faces and make us truly appreciate winter’s inherent and unique beauty.

Wishing all of us in the northern hemisphere a winter season filled with good health, peace, and beauty, and our fellow bloggers in the southern half of the world a pleasant summer.
