Winter Deepens in Scotland: frosty and pink

winter deepens

Winter deepens. The sky and loch are pink.

Walking is crunchy through the frozen mud.

I want the Solstice to come. I need more light. My body doesn’t like the extreme cold. It threatens to turn monstrous. And it’s -7 here today.

But it’s beautiful. And the beach is pink too.

  1. You yearn for the return of warmth while I pine for cooler weather here in the antipodes (it’s 30 degrees Celsius here and not yet noon) but when what we yearn for comes again, we’ll perhaps pine for the other. Human nature, I guess. My mum was a Scot, a Busby girl; she said what she hated of Scottish winters was the near eternal darkness. But the compensation was always the long, long warm days of summer.
