What Winter Teaches Us


Thought for the Week

The last leaves tremble on the ground

as the snow arrives to cover them

securing the peace that they have found

whispering rest

and think

and start again

  5. I’ve always appreciated the four seasons. Each time the season changes, it feels like I’m getting a second chance.

    This must be fluffy December snow that creates such a tranquil accord. The hard pack icy snow of January is definitely not as poetic.

    Rest. A key frontier in our caffeinated, 24/7, sleep-deprived, sleep-denied, tech-driven society. Winter is indeed nature’s reminder of its value and power. Thanks for giving it voice, Mitch. Beautiful post.
