I live alone with my preschooler in an off-grid cabin on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia.

It is because of winter that I appreciate spring. How many people do you know whose favourite season is winter? I used to dislike winter but as the years have gone by I've come to appreciate it. Winter is a time that encourages stillness making it the ideal season for inner reflection. As I watch the crocuses bloom I am reminded of how normally I resist change. Yet here I am welcoming spring. How is it I ask myself that this apparent contradiction lives within me?
