After so many cold days I just want to take a moment to remember warmth.

When I was younger I loved the cold – standing outside and letting the cold air fill my lungs gave me a bit of a high.  Sometimes I still get that high but it is soon replaced by the feeling of ice water running through my veins.

And in recent years I’ve become a beach person.  I used to be terrified of water and now sitting by a river, pond, or ocean gives me such peace.

I guess this is all because I’m getting older and while I miss the old things I used to love I still welcome the change.
