|I've never minded the company of giants, ehehehe :)|
All is coming alive once again in these lands and is officially free of snow or any other signs that Father Winter is lingering. This winter was a very active and mischievous one with many feet of snow (sometimes a few feet at a time), dangerously low temperatures, and vicious winds that burn the skin almost immediately. There were few days where the weather was mild once the season began and I feel that it lasted much longer this year than in previous years which caused the sight of snow to be a bitter one after some time. It was a time of rest, closure, and embrace of the darker aspect of the year cycle! I can't say that I'm disappointed or sad to see winter go because I've missed the sun and the sounds, textures, and activities of our living earth.

I'm generally one to celebrate and happily attune myself with the seasons but there were many days where I cursed the wind for burning me during my daily walks, hahahah! One's skin, even the skin of a northerner, can only handle so many gusts of wind that blow away your hood to attack your ears.

With this I officially say farewell to the cold and welcome the warmth - the light! *waves* It was great while it lasted, Father Winter, but it's time for a shift... see you in December!This season brings Renaissance Festivals, drive-in movie theaters, skirts free from wool leggings beneath them, dances in the sunlight, beautifully long days, laying in the grass... oh, and bugs!
I hope you're finding happiness in this season, even if you sometimes wilt in the heat like I do!
