"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"

Winter awakening by ulamosart

Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.

Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,  
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.

The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?

A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?

Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.

Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.

You have a lack of inspiration?

Be inspired by the music

"Far away there´s a land of snow and sorrow
Time has made the frozen tears fall like rain from the starlit sky
And I feel so cold, I can´t make it tomorrow
Oh, but the night will see where this path will lead my life
Endless field of snow at the edge of the world and the wailing
Winds so cold scar my face, I´m going insane
I am lost from the light - And the memories follow me in the night
I´m left in the arms of winter and I am carried far away - Far away"

Lyrics by WINTERSUN
