Antarctic Dreams

The Vagabond Poet has landed on terra firma at home after a 28-hour journey from Ushuaia, Argentina -- the southernmost city on the planet -- to our driveway.
I'm finding it impossible to describe to people what it was like. No superlative I've come across does the continent justice.
However, I've made one discovery: It's not the "White Continent" as it's so often called. Antarctica is the "Blue Continent" to me. Sky, water, ice combine in remarkable ways in myriad hues of blue. Ahhhh.

I've enjoyed looking out the sliding glass deck door just around dusk lately
the snow has a lovely blue glow at that time of day
nice to learn that my backyard shares the color of the antarctic
