Looking out of the window it is easy to interpret the moment as seasonal activities dominate the view. With such a scene it is tough to cast the mind back to earlier in the year, but I will try anyway.
The seasonal activities associated with spring in the countryside were most likely related to the cutting and bundling of grass as fodder for usage later. With schools nearing the summer break, seasonal activities may have focused on exams plus perhaps sports days or school fairs.
Summer brought the opportunity to pursue seasonal activities possibly linked to the outdoors. Depending on the weather at the time, the days could have been long as the sunlight kept us up. Did working days begin with early morning runs and end with late evening walks?
Autumn or fall could have been the time for seasonal activities concentrated on a new beginning in a way with the reopening of schools and the holiday period drawing to a close. The cooler temperatures might have encouraged a quickening of pace in our steps to match the moment.
So now we are back to this moment and the seasonal activities of winter. Stay well, stay warm and Happy Holidays to you.
