There is something special about winter.
It’s a time of dark.
A time to be indoors.
A times to cherish warmth and fire.
A time to cook feasts.
A time to be inside.
A time for trees to be bare.
A time to sometimes not travel.
For one of my meditation teachers, it’s the time to be deep in the woods of Vermont on retreat for a month.
For me, it’s a time to think and ponder.
I really missed the winter when I was in Southern California for a few years.
And we all need to learn to love what is in us.
And to just appreciate the sounds of silence.
