For You

"There is a privacy about [winter] which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer, and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
 -- Ruth Stout

  1. It is the desolate feeling of winter that makes us understand the desolate parts of our soul.

  2. I like this! I think it's my favorite reason for winter, seriously! Quiet stretches to savor belonging to myself... yes, that's my favorite part of winter. Thanks, Em. :)
