note to myself

"Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each."

— Henry David Thoreau

At least snowflakes are pretty.

I completely agree with this sentiment and try to practice it. It's easy to be excited by the beginning of winter, when the snow is beautiful and fluffy and white and the Christmas lights start coming out and you have all the holidays to look forward to. What's difficult for me is spring around these parts - when you've already had winter for 6+ months and it is still cold, snowy (usually old, leftover, dirty snow at that), and pretty dismal. It's hard to get into that whole "replenish and rebirth" spirit that those with four seasons get to enjoy.

But first snows, yes, I'm loving the first snows.

Ah, embrace the surrender.
