It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it. ~John Burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”

Gazebo Outside GOOD USE

Winter outside the Barnesworth Anubis Garden Gazebo

When everything is covered in snow even the most mundane landscape becomes a magical place that sparkles and shines in the winter sun. Having a special place to snuggle up in front of a fire, drink a cup of hot tea and watch the snow fly outside is one of the pleasures of a winter afternoon. We seek these places out to remove ourselves from the fast moving world around us and have time to seek a bit of inner peace and quiet, take a nap or whatever else we need to keep our mind and body intact.

Gazebo Living Room GOOD USE 2

Warm and cozy inside….

I have gone from hating to take naps, to loving them. 

I’m finding joy in the simple things I do daily, like going outside to feed the birds.

Listening to music while I work and thinking of it as the background of my life – like a movie soundtrack. No idea why this isn’t a part of human life because it makes everything more fun!

Doing a small thing for someone and seeing the enjoyment it brings.

Build a peaceful place around you, make a joyful noise, share your love, be generous with smiles and kind words….and watch how your life will change.
