"The twilight was falling slate-blue at the window.....Blue evening had fallen over the cradle of snow and over the great pallid slopes."
Happy day dear friends! Today is the shortest day of the year. Starting tomorrow the days will begin to lengthen and we will once again make that long turn back to Summer. For those like me, that love Winter, I will rejoice in its arrival.
"Winter is a time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home."
"In a way, winter is the real spring, the time when the inner things happen, the resurgence of nature."
