Call of the Winter

Ah, there is nothing like the first good snow cover to begin to hear the call of the winter! It always seems to capture that childlike enthusiasm of a classroom of students upon getting to play in the early snows of the season. I reminisce the wonder of students in creating their own paper snowflakes, each as unique as the children who created them.

Winter Wonderland

  1. It was the kind of snow that brought children running out their doors, made them turn their faces skyward, and spin in circles with their arms outstretched. Eowyn Ivey
  2. The color of springtime is flowers; the color of winter is in our imagination. Terri Guillemets
  3. Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world. Sarah Addison Allen

Nature’s Winter Artistry

A fresh snow brings out the artist in me, searching for beauty in the world. A memorable time was had when my husband and I went on a hike through pastures following an eight inch snow. It was quite a workout, but we captured some amazing photos!

  1. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. Andrew Wyeth
  2. It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. John Burroughs
  3. Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers. Kalil Gibran

Call of the Winter Wisdom

Winter is a time of rebuilding and replenishing.

  1. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. Albert Camus
  2. The fire is winter’s fruit. Arabian Proverb
  3. Winter is a season of recovery and preparation. Paul Theroux
  4. That’s what winter is: an exercise in remembering how to still yourself then how to come pliantly back to life again. Ali Smith

Here is a link for some fun outdoor winter activities: you relish whatever season you inhabit as that is the best strategy of all!
