"Take me to the northest pole, that there my spices all might flow. I know the north wind strips me bare, but still i ask you'd take me there. Release the fragrances within, may they be to you pleasing. And blow on me that all disease may freeze and die right here."
I was reading the above quote at the exact moment that my Dad called me on Sunday evening to show me the snow outside. He then proceeded to say how it would be good for the ground as it would kill all the bacteria. It is true. Every season is useful for it's own reasons. Trees may be fruitless and bare in Winter, but it's a vital season to sustain the overall life of the tree. So in a strange way i find myself saying... "blow on me that all disease may freeze and die right here."
