As you already know, I found myself more than a bit depressed by the long, cold, grey winter last year.
But after the sunshine of summer, I prepared my heart for the coming onslaught of snow and slush. I am embracing the beauty of winter this year.
Here are some snaps from a snowy day this week-I turned off my music, grabbed my camera, threw on the layers and headed out for a bit of peace.
I have also been looking up quotes about "seasons" (to remind myself that there is such a thing.)
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” -Albert Camus
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
-Lewis Carroll (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass)
-Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet
“She enjoys rain for its wetness, winter for its cold, summer for its heat. She loves rainbows as much for fading as for their brilliance. It is easy for her, she opens her heart and accepts everything.” -Morgan Llywelyn, Bard, the Odyssey of the Irish
Yes, this is me.
Stay warm this cold night, my friends.
