Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties
because it’s COOOLD out there today!
That’s right, rodent lovers!
It’s Groundhog Day!
…When Chekhov saw the long winter,
it was a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope;
and yet, we know winter’s only one more step in the cycle.
And standing among my friends and family,
and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts,
I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
