Closed for Winter

If I could wear a sign, it would say "closed for winter". It always feels like I'm going against the grain this time of year. I must be part ground hog or bear. I have this vision of being inside of a warm, rock cave and I am nested in furs and surrounded by cats. I sleep until winter's hold breaks and spring returns.

The solstice is next month and that brings me some joy. The days get "longer".

I think I understand why the winter solstice was a big deal to peoples of the past. I guess being huddled inside with stinky people and animals was trying on the nerves.

I still think about the cave filled with cats, though. All of them purring, or making trills. It's a comforting thought to get me through these winter days.
