Although it means we’ll be heading into our coldest months of the year it also means our daylight hours will begin to lengthen again.
With each new day the sun will rise a moment earlier and set a moment later. The extension of daylight marks a great turning point for me. After watching the landscape die off and go into its dormant state, it marks the first step of moving back toward a living state.
In my mind spring suddenly seems not so far off.
