~ title is Swedish; "The Ice-cold Wind"~ Resilience.
No matter how hard the freezing gusts hit, no matter how hard it was to find prey, you must never give in to the Winter...
How easy it would be just to lay down under a tree and let the cold put you asleep - for good...
They always say Winter is beautiful. Winter is glorious.
It truly is. But what they forget is that Winter is harsh, and If you're not resilient, you wont make trough it.
I'm hungry... I can't find anything to eat. Though I saw a reindeer, but only from distance. I'm just too tired to try catching one now... tomorrow, tomorrow I'll get one.
Now I'll just get some sleep. The darkness makes one go sleepy. Dizzy. Bright days are the coldest, but then you at least know you're awake. It's brighter than in summertime. But only for a moment.
Winter is dark.
Resilience. I'll make through this Winter with resilience, just like every year.
Yet every year Winter challenges me. It's never easier...
Still I admire Winter's majesty...
more than anything.
My entry to contest at #AnthroNOTFurry
"how do anthros deal with harsh winter"... And then we go like: harsh winter -> Lapland -> arctic foxes, fjelds, tons of snow -> this.
