As I sit and watch the snowfall, for what seems like the hundredth time this season, I keep wondering when winter will ease its grip? And then I realize how fickle the seasons can be, and that only winter remains steadfast and long, oh, so very long…

     Do the best you can to cope with the weather or whatever may be bugging you today!


Keep pushing Spring has to be up ahead..

Keep pushing Spring has to be up ahead..


(from page eighteen)


Short and sweet is summer’s heat,

but winter’s grip, tenacious.

Spring holds a promise,

but soon, autumn’s upon us,

and all but damn winter, betrayed us.
