A Glimpse of Wisconsin Winter

December 12, 2010

We’re officially snowed in, and the weather only promises colder temperatures and more snow.  This is usually the time of year when I question my sanity in staying devoted to a state that is frozen about 5 months out of the year.  Today, however, I feel grateful for the forced quietness, the obligation to stay inside and be domestic.  Winter landscapes are silent and majestic, with a kind of beauty that invites deep introspection, quiet incubation.  Even though I curse my frosty surroundings as I scrape my car windshields in the morning, struggle through banks of snowy white, and tiptoe across icy sidewalks, I am also trying to learn from the opportunities and lessons each change of season can bring.

I hope each of you is somewhere warm and cozy on this blustering December day.

    This looks beautiful! I live in New Hampshire and usually we have at least a little bit of snow by now…but alas, not yet. Hoping it happens soon!
