Winter is a time of quiet, hibernation, renewal, cold, waiting, rebirth and the mini death of nature’s plant life. Is is also some of the darkest days. Living on the northern east coast, means a ritual of heavy sweaters, overcoats, hats, scarves and gloves. But, it can be a time of great reflection, curling up in a natty sweater, lighting some candles, listening to music, pondering something as small as “getting a snack” or more significant like “what can you do to make your life more meaningful?”
With ice or snow covering everything, I tend to look up and notice the sky and stars. It’s wonderful to see the night light of the stars, so sometimes, I run out in the cold, with a thick sweater on and look up and I see the beautiful night sky, like a beautiful woman with the jewels of star light around her, blessing us with bits of colored light.
When it’s cold and depressing, look to the night and stars and realize that you are a part of something wonderful and unique in this time and space. No matter what, there is no one like you in the world, no one.
I’m sitting around with loved ones, wishing you peace.
