Everyone praises Spring
Summer and Autumn while
Winter gets a bad rap
Ego got in the way

It’s all the snow shoveling that did it!

Thanks Ben .. only that . it isn’t ‘ego’ .. can’t take the cold .. not born and bred here in the NE. Still not used to it even though I’ve been here since 2007 … so … not a ‘bad rap’ …. it is what it is .. Mother Earth need to take a rest during winter as she has been working hard for 3 seasons. Happy Thursday.
What I’m trying to say here is that each season is what it is and that it is our attitude in refusing to accept Nature as it is that can make it into a problem.
“There is no such thing as bad weather; only the wrong clothes.”
There is a level of allegory here of course; it’s not (just) about seasonal changes in the exterior weather. 🙂
I know what you’re saying, Ben. Am not refusing to accept Mother Earth’s way of being either .. it is what it is … just don’t like the cold much and it’s depressing when we can’t go out and do the usual gardening etc. We all have our own preferences but we all do learn to take in the good as well as the ‘inconvenience’ of winter. Namaste
Winter is actually my favorite season. You’re right it’s not bad weather it’s bad clothing. Not to mention bad insulation too. So get another blanket and cuddle up.
That’s an attractive suggestions, but I am wondering how many folk you are inviting here? 😛
After I wrote that I realized how it sound. A book, TV, or doll.
Or even an orgy? 😛
