After the sparkle and abundance of trimmings of Christmastime, there is such a peacefulness in unadorned trees. There's a bare beauty in frosty breath and windowpanes, brown and white fields, and the lonely call of geese. Although, weather this cold usually puts me more in the mind of domestic (indoor!) pursuits. Last week, I made more linocut prints~ simple things, each primitive and useful.
I imagine the stark beauty of this time of year sounds like this, sometimes as fearsome and wondrous as black crows on a winter wind~
Winter won't last too long, and I love the wonders and simple blessings of each season. Hot tea, a crochet blanket, and someone or something furry to cuddle with makes nearly anything bearable, so let the winds howl!
