    This feels like a stark depiction of hopelessness. There's nothing new to look forward to and it feels constantly like winter. Begrudging acceptance of your 'lot' may be the very thing that saves you?
    A brilliant and thought-provoking piece most worthy of the nomination Ben :-) x

    Ben, the winter blahs are very real and can be very hard thing to deal with. Everything seems gray and nothing brings joy. Nailed it!
