it's been tricky getting myself out of bed and out the door these mornings--
my inclination is hibernation. these short cozy days are meant for snuggling in bed.
my snooze button has been getting frequent use, and every now and then my
bed beats my running shoes to my heart.
but i'm always happy with what i choose: bed or fresh air.
the other morning i was especially pleased that fresh air won out:
i finally had the frosty morning of fog that i have been dreaming of for weeks.
as i stepped out the door i felt that i had truly stepped into the forest of lothlorien:
this winter was not threatening nor a death, but something truly fresh, poignant, and magical.
definitely worth getting out of a nice warm bed for...and of course, i didn't even notice the cold.
i'm off to enjoy more frosty days as we approach the darkest day of the year, which is really my favorite day of the year.
