As adults, we might resist this turning inward as we know that in doing so we have to face ourselves. We watch our children delight in winter’s joys – making snowmen and snowballs, sledding and skiing, watching snowflakes fall like magic from an ice blue sky – and we notice the part of us that hangs back.
