Like fresh snow that covers the ground in pure white, Winter is our blank slate. We enter this phase after moving through a period of release or loss; Perhaps we have decided to end a friendship or relationship, quit a job, or change careers altogether. Perhaps we have lost a loved one, or our home. It could be leaving a city — or a country even — and moving somewhere new. Whatever the case, we have let go of something familiar and find ourselves in a realm of unfamiliar, and in this new space we are faced with the task of redefining and redesigning who we are and how we want to express ourselves.
