A couple of blogs that I frequent made mention of The Taming of the Band-Aid, so I thought I’d take a look. Thingfish23 is “documenting the rather daunting task of returning our 75′ X 660′ lot to some sort of natural equilibrium. [His] goal is for [his] house and . . . family to exist in a harmonious way with the plants and animals that have been forced to move elsewhere due to poor stewardship on the previous occupants’ parts.” It’s clear he’s putting a lot of thought into this, and learning as he goes along. It will be interesting to keep tabs on him.
In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
