In the Ice - Omer Day 15

What do we see in ice?

The incredible beauty of Creation?

Ice dams and water damage?

Delicate tapestry?

Remnants of the bondage of winter?

A reflection of our self or the world?

Hope for new beginnings?

The intersection of solid and liquid, of secure and fluid?

The uncertainty of all?

What do you see in ice?

Today is the fifteenth day, which is two weeks and one day of the Omer.
Today is the fifteenth day, which is two weeks and one day of the journey from bondage to revelation.
