A Glimpse of Wisconsin Winter
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.
