Winter survival: An open mind and a zipped coat

img_20190127_094258-01There’s beauty in every season, even winter. All it takes is an open mind, and a zipped coat, to discover it.

This morning, my husband and I braved the freezing temperatures to keep our six-mile Sunday walking date. We craved fresh air and nature. Plus, we knew we’d jog a bit more to keep a step ahead of the cold.

The day was gray and the air crisp, but the ducks and geese didn’t seem to mind. We even passed a few other walkers, runners and bicyclists during our jaunt through Forest Park. Here are a few images from our outing, as well as a a couple of fitting quotes.


He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.

–John Burroughs


Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.

–Andy Goldsworthy
