I love winter. The people I have known throughout my life who do not love winter are typically the people who do not adequately play in the winter. There are many options for winter play, and humans are not the only ones that require this particular medicine to relieve “the cabin nasties.” Sledding, bounding, jumping, and laughing are just some of the ways humans can aspire to be more like the river otter in order to stay happy and healthy during the coldest months.
