winter of my discontent

Steamed Up

 

Packed in the barn for the winter, these ewes and their lambs live in a sort of dim twilight. Light but not light. Warmer but not warm. I feel as though I have something in common with the sheep. I am tired of the winter. I am tired of being packed inside. I am tired of not being warm, even in my own home. I am tired of the damp. I am tired of the wind. I am tired of the dark. I am tired of the ice and snow.

 

I am tired.

 

One thought on “winter of my discontent

  1. I think you speak for more folks than just yourself in relaying those feelings. The words strongly convey what this Winter has been like….hang in there, Tim…Spring is not far off!
