Snow day. Rare occurrence in this part of the country. Some communities in our area enjoying one or two this week. Schools and businesses shutting down. Opening up unexpected space in many people's lives. Time out. A gift from Mother Nature. Encouraging folks to slow down. Step away from the frantic pace many have adapted. Creating an opportunity to rediscover a sense of play. Read a book. Savour a cup of tea. Engage in board games. Get out for a walk. Perhaps reawakening the joy these simple pastimes can bring.
