On the topic of Love/Hate
I love the pictures I have gotten in the last 63 days of embracing the winter. If you would like to refresh yourself 11/23/2013 was the blog that started this idea. I hate the winter. I am done with winter. No more salt stains, no more cold feet, no more embracing this frigid and bleak weather. I have reached THAT point. I love/hate this time of year. This may even be the picture that brought me to this point. I love this picture and I hate this picture.
The idea was to see if the no trespassing sign still had any of my errrr….. handy work, let’s say, on it. It does not. I hate that what I might have done to “enhance” the sign was gone. In its place was glaring orange that I have to grudgingly admit adds a nice spark of contrast. I hate that too. I love the area and grudgingly what was done. This very easily brought home the idea of DONE. It was cold when I took this picture. What the hell is up with this cold???
I love the pictures I have gotten this year. I hate the cold. I hate the salt, dirty snow, cold, wet damp, dry and well everything else about this winter. I am cold almost all the time. I hate that winter rage is causing me to annoy myself. Winter rage is actually a very serious problem for me. Add into that I have a ridiculously cool spring to look forward to. I can envision my life taking some turns that are so fulfilling; really those turns are already so far along I am already experiencing them. I love that I feel those things happening now. I hate that to a certain degree it takes spring to really make it all come to reality. It is making this year’s winter rage much much worse. So bad in fact that I have decided that winter is now going to be over February 1, 2014. I love that I can be hopeful. I hate that I am 25% sure I am setting myself up to be miserable come February 1. 2014. That is the date for the light at the end of this winters dark tunnel I have now entered.
