family day in high park








It was chilly but beautiful.
Days like that redeem winter in my mind 
not that I really dislike winter.
There is a lot to love.

One day last week as I walked to the subway station in the morning
 I looked at the trees
and thought how amazing they are.
They look dead
but they aren't.
They are hibernating.

In a matter of weeks 
(yes, quite a few weeks, I admit) 
they will come back
and so will we.

But until then, 
I hope I have more chances to get out and embrace the cold.
Because it has a lot to offer
and we more to gain in doing so
than by just watching from our windows.
