Winter Finally Arrives in St. Louis?
Winter is a time of extremes – you love the cold air and dark nights or you hate them, Nature takes a break, yet it seems that we keep pushing harder than ever with a whirlwind of festivities, gatherings, and visiting family. We become more aware than ever of the blessings of bounty we have that some lack. Winter has long been an inspiration to writers across the ages; here are a few quotes that Indigo loves!
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
― Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ode to the West Wind
“Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.”
― Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen
“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.” – Rumi
