With the falling leaves, cooler mornings, and the soft glow of late afternoon, all this beauty foreshadows a high-country winter. I am always looking for different ways to stir creativity. Winter is a great time for many inspiring activities; skiing, good coffee, music, fireplaces, great books, close friends, quiet walks down a long snowy lane. I love winter. I love the change of seasons. Every 3 months or so the new season gives me a fresh look at life and how it’s going. I like to say; ‘how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.’ Time is valuable for anyone. But I try to remember that not very long ago, very few people had watches or knew exactly what time it was. However, they knew well the seasons of life. I can usually tell you what time it is without looking at my phone or watch. I’m not saying that’s a good thing. More importantly we should ask questions like; ‘Do we know the season? What does this season require of me? Is it time to plow, plant, rest or harvest?’ My watch or phone can’t help me with this.
