❄️ Winter's Cloak ❄️
To love someone long-term is to attend a thousand funerals of the people they used to be.
“The simple act of walking
I wanted to share my winter porch before winter was over!
“ I’ve long believed it’s a worthy act of attention to turn our gaze inward. Not only to tune in to those things that might need tending, but to deliberately seek out the beauty we wish to carry in our heart. To do so is an act of love. Don’t you think? I’m referring to gathering the experiences of beauty that light up our entire being. They can happen in countless ways and unexpected places — we might feel a subtle shift, hear a wordless message or sense a stirring of emotion. We let the moment imprint itself in our memory, in our body. Each time this happens, I believe we are creating an inner refuge of strength that will be there for us, no matter what.”
