Dude. Who turned on winter around here? Because it is cold. Like go find your cute winter beanie and wear it around your house all day, cold. But then, I kinda like wearing my cute little winter hats so maybe I'm just quick to rush to that.
Maybe I'm quick to rush to a lot of things lately. Like this crazy dream. Maybe now is not the time. Maybe this was a teaser. A little taste to tempt me. To make me see how much I want it. How much I desperately, desperately want it. Just not enough to take big, big risks. Or maybe....?
Someone once told me a little story that went something like this -- "if you put a frog in a pot of water and gradually turn up the heat, the frog will cook itself to death before jumping to safety. Whereas, if you put a frog straight into a pot of boiling water it will jump out and save itself."
I think I'm about to be the frog. The question is, will the water be boiling enough for me to jump out fast and save myself? Or will I slide into the hot tub and wonder why it keeps getting hotter and more uncomfortable?
Only time will tell.
I want to be excited about the cold. I'm usually excited about the cold. I want to be excited about the new season ahead. About another amazing winter in the mountains. Instead all I can say is "damn, its cold."
