I do not have the words to describe how spellbinding I find mid-winter. More than the frozen ground, the complete silence and the blue light, I sense that nature for some months is reclaiming control over our mad world. It is like the wild is telling us to slow down and just be cool.
Having spent winters in places like Arizona, the Arab Emirates and London, I have realized that it was this season I missed most of all. I simply need to connect to nature when it is at its harshests...and yet most inviting.
