january is a time of enough. it is quiet, insulated with snow, warm with a fire, it is enough. after a busy, hectic, no sleep and constant barage of orders, and happy new clients holiday season, it is peaceful to enjoy the quiet of my house and it's sledding hill. my dogs are alternately eager to go outside and come back in. their barks reassure me. like my fish, deep beneath the ice, I am safe, warm and content. I have lived 55 years and I know spring will come again. it is enough.
