For winterers a new dawn is arising. The time has come to shake off our winter coats and join the world.
The stations wild life is returning and a new cycle of regeneration appears as easily and painlessly as its dissolution. We too must get on board and join this process.
Winter has been terrific. For most of us ten months of isolation has been illuminating and fun. Where else can one become so embroiled in each other’s intimate foibles? You can’t keep a pretense up for ten months.
As Leonard Cohen wrote '…the cracks are where the light gets in…'and through these personality insights we gain insight into our common humanity. Warts and all.
To live with people this closely requires patience, tolerance and its sister acceptance. We are social beings and to quote Marcus Aurelius,
'Neither can I be angry with my brother or fall foul of him; for he and I were born to work together, like a man’s two hands, feet or eyelids…'
I am grateful for the winter opportunity and have been further burnished by it.
Welcome Summerers and thank you for shaking our reality and bringing us out of our cocoon.
