January – Respite

I have come to love January. After all the activity of Christmas, January comes quietly. It begins with the New Year, a clean slate. It makes no demands on your time or attention. It is a time to relax, to reassess, to reorganize. Ahhh…..

January has been very snowy. This week we had twelve inches of wet snow. It outlined every branch of every tree and bush. The branches of the pine and holly trees bent to the ground under the weight of the snow. The snow is white. The sky is white. It is hard to tell where the sky ends and the snow begins. It is so beautiful!

When you go for walks, you can’t hurry through snow. Every step takes work causing you slow down and really appreciate the world around you. So in the spirit of January:
