In Others’ Words: Winter
“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, poet
We haven’t had a lot of snow in Colorado yet this winter. Today there’s been a bit of snow on and off — nothing much to speak of. But you never know what you’ll wake up to. And about an hour north of here in Denver, the weathermen are predicting 5-8 inches. Then there’s always March, the snowiest month in Colorado — at least in the Front Range and in Denver. So, there’s still time for winter to show off.
Snow or no snow, we haven’t lacked for cold weather. Minus degree cold weather. And I couldn’t agree more: good food (like a pot of homemade soup or a mug of hot chocolate) provides a certain type of comfort. But there’s nothing like time spent with a good friend — maybe sitting in front of the fireplace sipping tea — or being with family, enjoying a game night.
Home wards off the chill of winter like nothing else — and as my husband said, home should ward of the chill of the world.
