There has been very little light lately. Short days with gray filtered sunshine. Since we humans are creatures of light just like every other living thing, it gets a little rough on the spirit. I can understand why some mammals choose to hibernate. I wish I could do the same sometimes. Winter has always affected me this way. After Christmas and New Years are over and done, I’m ready for spring and longer days. I’m ready for green grass that smells as sweet as honey. I’m ready for some different birds than the little sparrows who camp out in the bush next to my house. I like them too, and the cardinals. But spring brings so many different species to the bird feeder.
I know I shouldn’t wish away time. There is precious little of it accorded to us as residents of the Earth. We should use it all wisely, no matter the season. As we go into New Year’s Eve tomorrow night, I know there will be a lot of “resolutions” being made. The only one I’m going to make is to resolve to seek the light, no matter where it may be, no matter if it be physical or spiritual. Seek the light, and I believe that only good can result.
