Sally Keating says:
You have articulated so well the reasons to love January, snow, cold, winter, and darkness. Of course, I love January... because it is my birthday month, but, more so (really!), it is the time of simplicity, paring down, introspection. Having returned to Minnesota after a decade in the South, I feel I have regained a deep psychic balance fostered by the comfort of this starker time of quiet and 'reflection and perfection'. The ability to close in may be essential to the human soul. The dark months aren't always pretty or comfortable, but they are restorative in a way known to our Northern ancestors many millennia ago and still available to us if we listen and give ourselves permission to slow down. Thank you, Loni!
