Winter A Symbol of Old Age
Knowing that everything we do,
no matter how simple,
has a halo of imagination around it that serves the soul,
and makes things around us more precious
and more worthy of our protection and care."
Thoughts about old age and death are common during the winter months where solitude gives us time to reflect on the human journey. All life experiences the cycles from birth to death. Winter is the symbol for old age in the cycle of seasons. Unfortunately, in the western culture, old age is denied and death ignored. If you haven't ever done so, ponder for yourself the meaning of growing old and the naturalness of death.
