“Now is the time of fresh starts.
This is the season that makes everything new…you need December before you can see that a landscape of new fallen snow is THE REAL YOU.
December has the clarity, the simplicity, and the silence you need for the best FRESH START of your life.”― Vivian Swift

I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight,
And build me stately palaces by candlelight.”

“The weather behaved itself… In the spring all the little flowers came out obediently in the meads… in the autumn the leaves flamed and rattled before the west winds… and, in the winter… the snow lay evenly, three feet thick, but never turned into slush.”― T.H. White

“As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.”- Genesis 8:22
