Appreciation of a Winter Wonderland


When it’s minus 30 outside and you feel like you haven’t spent more than 5 hours outside in the past couple months, the mind tends to wander to sunny destinations, humid forests and warm blue waters. More than usual anyway. I’m definitely a daydreamer. That being said, many of us are so fortunate to be able wake up every day, wherever we are, and truly appreciate the natural world around us. Though I favour the heat (no contest), there is nothing quite like the shocking air of winter that grips all the little bubbles in your lungs, the particular scent of pine and woody aromas that are so prominent on the breeze, and the welcome winter sun that pierces the clouds and reflects off the snow onto your vitamin D deficient face. When mother nature gives us a gracious -2 for a day, it is so revitalizing to appreciate what this season has to offer, even if it does mean a few (or many) more layers. Wherever you are, I hope you have the chance to see the sun today, and soak up what our beautiful Earth shares with us! Unlike many new developments, we are blessed with trees in this area and the nearby Fort Edmonton Park, which must be also beautiful in the spring and summer.DSCN2795 DSCN2818DSCN2793DSCN2805DSCN2820

Enjoy your day wherever you are! Namaste!

  1. Amazing. Being from Winnipeg, I can relate to the stark cold of winter you experience. I personally love it – I never feel more exhilarated than in the flipping freezing cold!
