February Fantasy

Swan Lake

What can be more beautiful than the after-storm serenity? This tranquillity is like  knitting to me ...

with the only difference that knitting is a very warm coolness ... :-)



Here, I included my previous winter-'knitted' newsletters as a "tribute" to the snowiest month by the lake of swans -  Ontario.

Wintery Toronto

"Without the stress of cold in a temperate climate, without the cycle of the seasons experienced not as a gentle

swell up and down but as an extreme lurch, bang!

From one quadrant of the year to the next,

a compensatory pleasure would

vanish from the world."

Snow, Hello!!

"There is a lovely term in botany – vernalization – referring to seeds that can only thrive in spring if they have been through the severity of winter. Well, many aspects

of our life have become, in the past several

hundred years, “vernalized.”

 Winter Dreams

"If we didn’t remember winter in spring, it wouldn’t be as lovely; if we didn’t think of spring in winter, or search winter to find some new emotion of its own to make up for the absent ones,

half of the keyboard of life would be missing.

We would be playing life with no flats or

sharps, on a piano with no black keys."
