It's good to be reminded of the abundant life which surrounds and sustains us. It's all gone cold and dormant now, and that's good, too, but the occasional reminder is good for the spirit.
I was going to say something about denial. I changed my mind when all I could muster was "Denial is a cow."
Hoofed mammal, two stomachs, chews cud, gives milk. No, can't quite get what I was trying to say with that.
Maybe I mean it's sacred. Or a good source of leather.
Whatever it was I am not denying the cold. I like it. It's good for writing. But I do think that as the days get colder and darker we need to be reminded it's only sleep, not death, and it'll be green and vibrant again.
Happy days of cold everyone. Enjoy it for what it is because it's all we've got.
