Being in winter– unlike living in California or being a character in a Katy Perry video– it makes you patient, and resilient, and everything else I hate to get, but love to be.
Especially: peaceful, having had it out with all your messes.
Deep spiritual thought:
Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
