Stay warm; I know I am

Ah, that we lack the courage

of our romantic convictions;
and thereby miss the wine of
life, forgoing the very thing
that makes living worthwhile.

Hunter S. Thompson

In the midst of winter

I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

― Albert Camus

Feeling more seasonal

by Joseph O. Holmes

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

When life gives you lemons, Throw'em into the pool...Why not?

“We play among dense fields of sugarcane
Shaking a citrus tree to taste its rain
From scorching sun, we always flee,
Panting for an old shadowy tree”
