If you can't beat 'em...

...join 'em. Sure, it is winter, and going out the door (not to mention out on the water) may have less appeal to you than when it is warm and balmy outside. In addition to leaving your skills on the shelf (re: last blog) you may be tempted to leave your life up there as well. Now, if you live in a year round warm climate this won't make sense to you. Up north, however, the short, cold and gray days have a way of sucking the ambition out of a body (I've written about SADS elsewhere...but I digress). It gets too eay for folks around here to sit indoors watching the tube while medicating with vast amounts of comfort foods. Subsequently, the skills and muscles slowly get replaced with sloth and flab.

Know that winter has a beauty all its own, a beauty that is revealed to those who take the time to find it. Many of the blogs this month, including Wendy's, have had wonderful images of winter scenes. Hopefully, these will stimulate us to get out there...appropriately dressed...and enjoy Mother Nature's winter art show. Oh, and when you do, take a camera.

Paddle safe...
