We just got thru January without too much snow . . . thanks to that blizzard that took a last-minute turn away from us just about a week ago. But February is turning into a true winter month, with lots of snow, ice and frigid misery. But hey, it’s past Groundhog Day; old man winter got a late start this year and may not last too long into March given current climate change trends. So we need to grit our teeth and tough it out. It’s still too early to look for signs of spring, but even in the midst of the winter grunge, you occasionally see a note of beauty. Such as these newly ripened fruit on a holly tree branch. You can’t eat it (it’s poisonous), but it does add a note of cheer. Well, almost, anyway.

  1. Jim, Yes, we’ve had our winter wonder land here too–and it truly is just that. However, if one could just simply enjoy it without having to go anywhere in this kind of weather, it might be more enjoyable. Yet, we should take what we can get and enjoy the beauty that is part of winter.

    I see it as all part of the new growth that will come with spring. The trouble with “growth” is that it is difficult. It seems to me winter is a symbol of the unconscious figuring out life for the individual, the community, and the planet. Let’s hope the unconscious brings good things in the growth that is underground now. MCS
