A Winter Anthology

Winter, for all its icy coldness and dark nights, is beautiful.
It’s a subtle beauty, to be sure. The snowfalls seem endless, the whipping winds, cruel, and everyone holes up in their homes for some sort of respite.
But in midst of all that, there is also the wonder of seeing a perfectly six pointed snowflake, and the joy of watching the snow fall quietly at night. Despite the harsh frost of winter, there is excitement in warming up with a cup of cocoa, and in waking up to see Jack Frost designs on the windows.
It may seem endless at times, but there’s beauty in everything if you just look for it and winter, as I’ve learned, is no exception.
