Within the depth of winter, there is a message. As 2013 comes to a close, we look back and look forward. What can we do to better ourself as an individual and within the community we all are part of to some degree?
Winter has blanketed the land and trees with her white wonder. The land gives in quietly and silently. Peace and stillness dominate everything you see or hear, and in this moment, the body and mind become unsettled, disconnected from the chaos, fray, and suffocating energy they have become used to. Forced from what is known, we are thrown into another world not far physically, but worlds apart emotionally and spiritually.
The raven caws from the distance, circling high above the tree-tops, searching for a meal, or keeping an eye on the human making snow angels.
