"Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius."
Loving winter: Less socializing means more time for writing, reflecting, cooking, nesting. Coffee dates. Deep sleep. Herbal teas. Root vegetables. Baths. Practicing while the sun rises. Immense gratitude on warm(ish) sunny days like today.
It's good to be reminded to love our other winters (winters of our moods, winters of our bodies during illness and injury, winters of relationships). Because denial of things, either self-imposed or external, makes their return so sweet.
