Leaving for Rome and Israel in seven days. I will be gone for an entire month. Wow. When I look out my favorite window, which I do every morning, I see black and white, snow, branches of trees, slush. I’m headed out for a walk. It’s warm today, in the 30’s. Rome and Israel are in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. I will miss February in Minnesota, winter and cold. Yes. I did just say that and I did just mean what I said. I will miss the February winter in Minnesota, all bleak and blue and cold. It makes us strong, I think, or it makes us cold or Minnesotan or grateful or depressed. You can blame winter for all sorts of things but I wouldn’t ever want to live without it!
