As winter approaches, that great ball of fire hugs the southern horizon more and more. Thankfully the weatherman got it wrong - we haven't endured ten days of fog, low clouds, no sun, "Sorry, folks."
Today the sky is clear blue and the sun's generous, warm energy makes its way to the soil.
And to my skin!
A sunny spot, a pair of shorts and sleeveless shirt, a beagle at my feet. Relief!
Cold invigorates. Rain pleases the senses. Fog makes for introspection and mystique. Snow muffles and soothes. Unexpected, unfiltered sunshine stimulates!
This sort of winter weather-stew I can live with.
