"Allegory of Winter'' by Jerzy Siemiginowski-Eleuter.

 

"Is there any better tonic for living than a climate that ranges from 15 above a night to 35 above in the afternoon, that has air both windless and dry, that has the sun rising though frost mist and its moon lavishing itself on a white world?....

"We are forced by pleased experience and reviving logic to concede that a perfect day in any one season is the equal of a perfect day in any other season. This, just as we had formed the rigid opinion that winter was one season we could do without.''

-- From In Praise of Seasons, by the late Alan H. Olmstead, a Connecticut-based editor and essayist.
