A tree in winter

Another thing that I read in A Guide to Nature in Winter was, "winter trees already contain the coming year's leaves and flowers, continually respond to light and temperature in the environment, and in their silhouettes, graphically represent the reaching out to life to absorb energy from the sun."

I like to think that in times of dormancy and stagnation, I have within me the potential to blossom and grow.

Perhaps I live a more withdrawn life now because the world out there is not so hospitable. When I do find more hospitable conditions, I do reach out to absorb the sunlight (for example, enjoying time with friends and family).
