I heart winter.
I saw this quote on another blog this morning:
February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer. (Shirley Jackson)
For me, it should read the opposite:
August, when the days of summer seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of winter. (Janelle Clark)
Yes, I like winter, especially the watered-down quasi-winters we get here in southern Virginia. I'd actually like a little more snow, but otherwise winter here is a pretty good thing--plenty of sunshine, warm days interspersed with the cold--not too bad a deal.
Happy birthday to my friend Matthew, who is eleven years old today, with a terrific life all stretched out in front of him like a groundhog's shadow!
