Fighting the Frost

The weather lately has been a good metaphor for how I feel about life in general. It goes something like this:

“Here comes Spring! So much vitality rising up within to prepare for a new season of light and growth! It’s getting warmer, and warmer, and… oh, crap. Another frost? You CAN’T be serious!”

Yes, this is the story of my life lately — a slow, steady increase of inner warmth, inner light, inner fire, while the outside world remains just as cold and cruel as ever, if not more so.
