It is cold and the light is dim. Everything in my body is saying snuggle under the blanket and rest.
Our culture is telling me to get up and be productive. Get things done. Don’t miss out. Be grateful for the snow and biting temperatures. Learn to ski or ice skate!
I am grateful for winter. I love the stark beauty of the naked trees and grey landscape. I look to nature for the lesson of lying fallow to enrich the earth and decreased activity when conditions are harsh.
We are a “doing culture” but winter reminds me of the magic and strength of being. I will rest. Spring will be here soon enough.
