On the Spot

By Michael Turton

How are you coping with the shorter days?

“It’s tiring. A lot of people are miserable. I get as much sunlight as possible and do a lot of walking.” ~Marc Meliti, Cold Spring

“It doesn’t bother me. It gives you an opportunity to rest.” ~Ruta Lew, Beacon

“I’m trying to embrace it as part of staying in rhythm with the natural world; winter is a quiet time of year.” ~Mary Fetherolf, Newburgh
