After Christmas, on my calendar, came hibernation.
A time to let the field lie fallow, to hunker down, eat dumplings, and stay in the moment of cozy.
Not a thought for how long this would last only the understanding that hibernation does have a natural ending.
Mine ended in June!
Wasn't quite expecting that.
And was not expecting it to end in the way that it did.
This was not a dark depression of winter, just a gentle lie down in front of the fire.
A snuggle under the duvet.
A gentle warm bath that lasted a long while.
And when it did end, after a prolonged and gentle rousing it was in full on colour and a sloshing of paint.
I is happy in my summer.
Hope you is all happy in yours.
