Its been raining for over a month. The trees are turning orange and gold. It’s gotten to the point that the heater needs to be on. Everything in life is changing. I’m clinging to that Koselig life.
Hygge from Denmark is similar. You can get the book all about it off Amazon but I found it to drag on. Koselig is easy to understand. In short it means a coziness obtained not necessarily all by things but interaction with family and friends. Soup, dark corners, lit candles, and friendly conversation are all koselig. I’m listening to Myrkur, HIM and soft jazz. I’m embracing the melancholy of outside.
You can do this too. Embrace the changing of seasons with open arms. Complaining and moaning about it will not make the coming of winter any slower. Enjoy it!
