Clearly, there are times when the world is wrong...when things exist that just don't seem to make any sense... when there is an un-ease lurking just below the surface of my skin of something not-quite-right. But then there is a day like today when the feeling is that all is as it should be. Being somewhat obsessive by nature, this is a dreamy state of mind for me to be in...a place for everything and everything in its place. Plus the sun was shining...point taken?

This is truly a remarkable time -- this winter-thing, I mean. Or maybe I just mean WINTER, in all caps. To be so controlled by nature is rather humbling and a very new experience. When I lived in a warmer climate where everyone was in agreement that the weather was "perfect", we were a spoiled and bratty people. Whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted it, we could have. We could drive anywhere, no matter how steep the hill. We could go out for a run or a walk wearing barely nothing. We had 4-wheel drive on our cars and didn't use it. Our shoes were fashionable and barely functional. Shopping was our sport of choice. Well, THINGS HAVE CHANGED...for the better. You might think that the winter brings on isolation but quite the contrary. The social connections ramp up around this small town and at times, it is a whirlwind of activity. Everyone is bundled up warmly, and boots are big and insulated, and time is given freely, and friendships offered often.

Another day is what we have and I am so thankful for that. How can this be? The depth of the love that I am feeling today is beyond all bounds. It crosses all borders. It flows through all walls. It beams out of my eyes. My face hurts from smiling. I want to have this feeling...to own this feeling...to always keep it close to my heart. But, trust me, mes amis, there is more than enough for all of us so please partake, freely.
