The means of weakness and debility;
Therefore my age is as a lusty winter,
Frosty, but kindly.- “As You Like It” Act 2, Scene 3
The saying goes, “If you don’t like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes.”
That quote in turn reminds me of one from my favorite book, that I happen to be reading to my kids right now, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
In it, Dashti quotes her mother, who is talking about the resilient happiness of their culture, wherein she says,
“Feeling sad? Wait a minute.”
The idea, of course, being that they are a people of such happy disposition that it doesn’t matter how they feel, they’ll feel better again soon.
I’ve decided I’m in that category. Because I was LOVING LOVING LOVING the long period of perfect weather…but I LOVE LOVE LOVED being out on the trail in the first snowfall of the season today.
(you can replace ‘trail’ with ‘outdoor gym’)
The snow was blowing in my face.
Here I faked it. This was to send to Matt. I ♥ Matt.
Looking down on Rim Rock Drive.
Looking Up No Thoroughfare Canyon…my favorite place.
