Roots in Winter

‘Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet but the roots are down there riotous.’ Rumi

These words seemed like the perfect quote for this first day of winter. As we begin this dark, deep season proper, it is important to remember that Rumi is correct- although things seem quiet on the outside- our roots are riotous within- reaching deep and ensuring that we will find nourishment for the new year ahead.
