It is winter and I am standing in the snow. It is bright, clean and sparkling, swilring all around me. The earth breathes under my feet and there is a profound sense of peace and clarity. The North is strong, beautiful and healing. Cold air stirs the snowflakes into tiny crystals of light that dance before my eyes. Bluejays call and play overhead, and a rabbit takes shelter under a large pine bough. Life abounds, and the seasons are balanced. The sound of creaking ice from a nearby lake catches my attention, and I laugh and toss up handfulls of snow in celebration. Myself and this piece of the planet are at peace together. The animals and plants that surround me acknowledge each other in a silent communion of spirit. We are all One, healthy and whole. Below my feet, the seeds of a new Spring are preparing themselves to emerge in a celebration of color and nourishment - but for now, we rest, and sleep and enjoy the hibernation time. I return indoors to a warm hearth and a cup of hot tea. Life is excellent.
