Melancholy were the sounds on a winter’s night

Winter is difficult for me. I don’t mind the cold but I just can’t stand the almost constant bleakness and dark. The only exception is for those few hours when the sun is low and right in your eyes. Also I dread when the weather is bad and I’m stuck in the house or have to work super hard to get out. I’m trying to deal with the winter as best as I can. I hope you can forgive my lack of posting often.

I will attempt to appreciate the parcels of winter that may be pleasant and continue to press on.

“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

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck
