Let the Other Kids Play

The sun was shining, there was little wind, and the thermometer was favourable – in other words, a beautiful day to go outside and play in the snow. The snowshoes were calling! Instead I sat inside, out of the sun and cold, watching Carm and the dogs have fun. I had a treatment on my face this morning so I can’t go out for a few days and felt like the kid who has to watch her friends from the window.

The fairest thing in nature, a flower, still has its roots in earth and manure. ~D. H. Lawrence
