How to Winterize Your Mind:
One: See the sun rise and set every day... Don't miss a minute of daylight.
Two: Learn to draw a tree...Now is the best time to see what a tree really looks like. Draw one every day.
Three: Put something beautiful in your room so that it's the first thing you see when you wake up.
Four: Mend something with your hands. Sew it, glue it, nail it, fix it.
Five: Hibernate. Life is but a Winter Dream.
