One Response to “Thank you for Winter Retreats”

  1. Humans, too, holed up for the winter in times past, & to a lesser degree still do. We huddle in tight groups around our fires, in warm pubs, under down blankets on soft beds. With our windows closed, we share our colds & other infections. We sing together, share dreamy thoughts & practice dangerous sports outdoors to spark our stir-muffled minds. Most farming stops, we work little or at least less, & some of us go mad because being with ourselves is a labor at which many of us are unskilled.
