A very happy dog. Its about -7'C and that is a BIG smile.
Take note all you winter whiners and complainers...what a beautiful time of the year this is! Last night the full moon made the snow actually glisten-sparkle-twinkle like a white starry sky. I guess I wouldn't mind not hearing about how cold it is outside (yah) or about the shoveling (okaaayyy) or especially about wanting/wishing to be elsewhere (snore).
Hey, I left California, the land of milk and honey and salads and citrus so,
yeah, I get it sort of. The monotony of perfect weather, day after day, week after week, year after year, really bugged me. Don't laugh -- perfect weather fosters a weird lifestyle of sport shopping and consumerism.
The 'its never enough' syndrome.
Now I choose this place--to be present, in the here & now, where the cold beauty of a winter day and night is 'more than enough'.
