I’m Katie, a graphic designer who mostly somersaults through life. My blog is all about things that inspire me – be it art, design, or other snippets i find along the way.

you’ve got to love it

“See, I don’t yet realize that March will be the hardest month. Early February’s the coldest, and often the snowiest, but March, strange, silent March, will be the hardest.

The danger in yielding to thoughts of spring–green grass, hikes, bare feet, lakes, fly-fishing, rivers, and sun, hot sun–is that once these thoughts enter your mind, you cant get them out.

Love the winter. Don’t betray it. Be loyal.

When the spring gets here, love it too–and then the summer.

But be loyal to the winter, all the way through–all the way, and with sincerity–or you’ll find yourself high and dry, longing for a spring that’s a long way off, and winter will have abandoned you, and in her place you’ll have cabin fever, the worst.

The colder it gets, the more you’ve got to love it.”

~Rick Bass fr. Winter -Notes from Montana

i think he’s right. i think he’s pretty wise. and so i will embrace winter for as long as it wants to be here.
