This was the state of the water just outside my door on South Georgian Bay in early March, when wind and snow or freezing rain still pummeled us. I like the way Cee Neuner describes the attributes of winter water in her latest photo challenge (reprinted below). This post is for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
Winter is the energy of the element Water, the time of rest and hibernation, when nature retreats to build up its reserves for its next cycle of seasons. This is a quieter, more reflective time of year, a time when it is easy to sleep in, stay at home, and let ourselves rest.
Water is about our ability to flow and to overcome obstacles. To understand the attributes of water in ourselves we can think of the many ways water presents itself in Nature.
Think how our energy can resemble a mighty river or a trickling stream, the waves of the ocean, a frozen lake, a gentle rain.
The more we rest in Winter the more harvest we can expect in Late Summer.
