The Winter of our Days…

“In winter, the primary developmental objective is to develop a sense
of oneness with all and reconcile the sweet and the bitter in life. The
main life focus is reconciliation – finding harmony and peace with
ourselves, others and life in general.
“Winter’s mythic theme is irony, reflecting a persistent
anticipation that the unexpected is always around the corner – though
not necessarily in a negative sense. In fact, the unexpected often
delights the older person as much as it does a child. Irony is
particularly therapeutic in how it helps us cope with what we can’t
change. And, it often provides us with a certain comedic twist to ease
the burdens of old age.”
