Late November brings the end of the vibrant colors of fall and marks the beginning of winter in my natural calendar. The opening lyrics of “California Dreaming” fill my mind as I cross the top of Summersville Dam and take in the brown leaves that still cling to the trees. The fact that I still have a blue sky is enough to break the somber moment. I continued across the dam and began to notice that cottages and camps along the road were dressed up with the bright colors of the holiday season and after the sun goes down you can stand on a nearby mountain and all the little lights seem to form temporary constellations. The winter sky is clear most of the time and it’s easy to imagine that you’refloating in space looking out across eternity. As I pulled into the driveway of the farm where I grew up I noticed how green the holly and cedar are. The cedar even sports the dark blue berries right up into Spring. Soon a soft blanket of snow will come and make the bright red of the cardinals stand out from the gray world of winter. The colors are still there if I just look for them. The amber glow from the fireplace warms the soul as well as the body and before you know it the crocus will be popping up with a promise of new life.
