July

we seek the heat

we seek the light

reminding ourselves we are alive

During these cold days and nights our senses come awake in different ways to the days of summer – we are drawn to comfort, to warmth and light.

But remember to welcome the tingle of icy finger-tips, the mist of warm breath when you step outside, the thin winter light that subdues the colours around us.

Our senses give us feedback from the physical world – keep us awake and attentive.

Hibernation is not an option.

  1. Thank you Claire for sharing your beautiful, warm thoughts of winter. Here in the northern hemisphere we’re experiencing a heat wave … hmm, talk about the tension of the opposites! For as much as I love heat and sunshine, in my garden I search for deep shade, comfort and coolness. Great last line! Solstice blessings, Deborah.
