In the Depths of Winter



At the end of January, it is comparatively early in the season (my glass half-full nephew reminds me that it’s “only eight weeks until Spring!”) . . . but also so very, very deep.

And somehow it’s all still out there: brilliant buds waiting in the soil, hearty birds calling out as they find clusters of ruby berries still clinging to branches in white-out winds, fish gliding under inches of ice.

In the depths of winter, may you find within you “an invincible summer.”
