How to enjoy a long winter

Jason Kottke:

I decided that because I live in Vermont, there is nothing I can do about it being winter, so it was unhelpful for me to be upset about it. I stopped complaining about it getting cold and dark, I stopped dreading the arrival of snow. I told myself that I just wasn’t going to feel like I felt in the summer and that’s ok — winter is a time for different feelings.

I’ve decided the same long before I read Jason’s post but it was a good reminder for me. I’m also going to make the best of winter. I’m going to embrace the differences this season brings and I’m now looking forward to that. Also, the worse the winter the more I’ll enjoy spring!

Saw this tag walking back in the snow to the office after a client meeting. Thought it ironic.

Pathway, Westfield, NJ – January 2018

Found this small pathway between buildings in Westfield that led from the storefronts to the housing beyond. On these cold winter days this is likely the quickest way to get to the nearby bakery or Five Guys for a burger.
