I don’t even care that we’re in the midst of our fifth blizzard in a month, I am glad it is February.

January was nothing but good to me (and 2011 is shaping up to be the big year I predicted!). For several reasons, I stuck very closely to the moment, barely allowing myself to think ahead and focusing on each day. It was productive, with great professional and personal growth (and a lot of socializing) but it was long. And I am excited for the new opportunities of February.

“Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.”

— John Boswell

And for entertainment:

“The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.”

— Joseph Wood Krutch
