A Wintery Privacy... A Wintery Quote

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
Ruth Stout

I can't think of a nicer way to describe winter. Now if Mother Nature would just co-operate and let the snow drift quietly to the ground with out the Bora Winds blasting us from our slumbers!
