The outside is quiet. Peaceful. White. Silent and still.
Internally breathing in the coolness of the air.
It is a slowing down. A calm place.
The gloves and socks keeping one warm.
Listening to the crunching of boots in the cold snow.
The wind whipping across cheeks. Shocking but refreshing.
A pace that is slow and deliberate.
Peaceful even for a few days.
It is good to enjoy the beauty around us.
We watch children playing without a care of warmth or safety.
Then we return to our warm home.
Dinner was cooked and coffee was hot and it was amazing and refreshing to go on a cold crisp winter walk.
