Truth in snow

©Dale Rogerson

They met in a snowstorm. Or rather, they truly saw each other in one. Because you never really know a person until you experience something challenging together. Until you witness a side that is not usually seen. The weaknesses and genuine personality. Things you often try to hide to the outer world.

The snowstorm was that crisis. But it was also the opportunity to come closer. It was when they acknowledged they had more in common that originally believed.

It wasn’t just friendship that joined them.

It was something deeper.

It took a white cloud for them to see it.

  7. I love this and it is so true. Moving, snowstorms, being locked up together during a pandemic… you can’t hide your true self forever…

  8. That is so very true. During crisis is when you find out who your true friends are (even if you’ve never met them in person). They’re the ones who stick by your side like honey sap in spring. You know, the kind you can’t shake even if you try. Great story to go with the prompt, for they truly are the light in the darkness.
