Prior to winter, one can sense the excitement about that first snowfall. Skiers are concerned for their slopes, kids wish for snow days, and many just pray for a white Christmas.
Then it snow, and it snows, and when it’s done snowing, it snows some more. Some winters never seem to end. And I am thinking of all those folks that were so eager for that first snow, and how typical it is of us wanting something badly, only to quickly tire of it and want it to go away; a job promotion, a new project, a promising date, heck, even a newborn… We want it all but we want it exactly the way we wished it, and to last precisely as we desired.
Unfortunately life doesn’t work that way. Not in this incarnation it doesn’t.
So next year maybe if we can all synchronize our wishes to make it only one beautiful week of winter, maybe it will work.
Otherwise my fellow New Yorkers, there is always Florida…
