This week, I & everyone in southern Ontario could not but help to notice that Ms Winter indeed arrived & she shared her bounty with us on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. Temperatures have dipped as low as -22 (c) with a wind chill factor of making in more like -35 (c). Day time highs have only risen to -14(c) with a wind chill of -21 (c). Boxing day the sun shone very brightly all day & was very welcomed indeed.
So this is what winter is currently looking like in my area - snow, bitter cold & very strong winds.
Pay attention. Cultivate awareness. Life cannot be lived fully or joyfully if our thoughts are focused on regretting the past,
preoccupied with anticipating the future, or lost in the mind-fog of unconscious habitual behavior. - Jonathan Lockwood Huie
