Gaining Perspective


Mother Nature has the power
to please,
to comfort,
to calm,
and to nurture one's soul.
                Anthony Douglas Williams



Last week we were in the throes of bitter cold and snow



Today I'm enjoying a walk with geese following me, it's 51 degrees!


Winter is
Coldest season of the year
Gloomy and gray most days
The season that begins in December and ends in March
Snow falling, shoveling snow
Barren 
Dry skin, numb fingers and toes, a drippy nose

Winter offers 
A slow-down
Appreciation of comfort foods
A talk beside the fireplace enjoying a glass of wine
Sledding, building a snowman, ice skating
Christmas and New Years Eve
Gathering with family and friends
Dreaming and planning summer vacations
Reading a book, watching movies
Snow falling
A winter hike
Garden dreams of tomatoes

No winter lasts forever;
no spring skips its turn.
                           Hal Borland
