Winter Dreaming

When its blowing snow outside, and the temperatures are lingering at – 20c with windchill, like most people, staying indoors is usually the more favoured choice.  I enjoy spending time at home  to reflect, relax,  learn, drink tea, and cuddle with my cat,  Yuna.
Today I gazed out the window to see a curtain of white snow swirl about the sky.  It made me think of home. I come from Kenora, Ontario, Canada a small town near the edges of the Ontario-Manitoba border.  For most of my life, frigid long winters were pretty normal, with temperatures dropping to -30 ( not including windchill) quite regularly. Getting dressed meant bundling up in layers, breaking a sweat while getting ready, and waddling your way outdoors… atleast I imagine my younger self waddling with all that winter gear on. But, despite those long hard winters, there is a lot of beauty  in that small town.  These images I took a few years ago, but its nice to be reminded to cherish the beauty in the season, and  the moments spent with friends, family, and pets.
