“February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer.”
– Shirley Jackson, Raising Demons
The color of our Seattle winters is gray, gray, and more gray. I long for sunshine.
Seattle winters teach endurance. Not a bad lesson. The challenge is to keep from sinking into melancholy and to find moments of brightness to cheer the soul.
