Winter is a season of solitude. Nowhere is that poignant than northern New York on a snowy gray afternoon in February. Alone in a rural old farmhouse, every sound even silence has a melancholy echo. The winters here hard as the people who endure them.
In a song by Barbara Heller, she sings “it’s not loneness it’s solitude” but as my 57th. winter approaches, i am seeing solitude more as a hammock under a tree with a cool drink.
Reproduced from a watercolor painting.
“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.”
