On winter


Winter is  getting pretty long all around this country..snow everywhere.  I am wondering if it seems longer this year because I am home so often, if the days are stretching more.  In years past I have always structured my calendar by appointments.  I would, in October, be making appointments for January, In January for March, and time flew quickly by lived in the concept of appointments.  Now, I measure my time mostly in weeks and this is an adjustment.  Each day is challenged to have structure, productive structure.  I  can revel in the endless time so much that I let weeks fly by, unnoticed!

This morning, I was thinking about cold, and snow, and wishing it was done…but,  thinking of it in the fulfillment of the season, maybe I am not so sure I want winter to leave just yet.  This is a time, for me anyway..this year, of reflection ..    a time to try to place things in order, so that when wonderful, lovely spring comes home, I am ready to enjoy her.

So I looked for inspiration, something to help me love winter more, and I found this quote by Andrew Wyeth

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter.  Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.  ~Andrew Wyeth

And so…I am enjoying the waiting.
