A Different Spin: Part Deux + 10 Songs for Winter

A barren season? Who are you kidding?

There's something about a winter sky in the morning--some indescribable presence amidst the crisp, virgin air that delights my soul. Perhaps it is because I'm a December birthday, but when the snow starts to fall and temperature drips down to awfully low levels, I welcome the new season with some gloves and a jacket rather than complaints and grievances.

Many just see winter as a wasteland for nature--a barren tundra that lasts for several months (depending on whether Puxatawny Phil shows his head). But this is wrong, my friends! Terribly wrong! Winter is mother nature's time for rehabilitation. It is a season full of potential energy that gets lost in the human psyche. That energy will soon be utilized during what many call Spring. It is a shame that in a day where conservation and thriftiness are appreciated, Winter still receives no credit.

True, some of that energy gets lost in the chilly, sterile air. But, it is only to be breathed in by human beings like you and me. This, my friends, is a call to arms. Grab your gloves, get a hat, and put on a jacket already! Put down your hot chocolate and your rock-em sock-em robots! Open the door and start revitalizing yourself. It's better than hot chocolate. I promise.
