Midweek Meditation

“People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.”  ~ Anton Chekhov, born January 29, 1860

I wonder if this is really true.  I have a suspicion that those born in the winter tend not to be as bothered by it.


  1. But as a child, they are bothered by cancelled birthday parties due to snow! (I speak from experience)

    1. Thanks for your comment, Tracy! You remind me of a (sad) story I have heard more that a couple of times from my Aunt who had her 80th birthday last month.

      There are also some exceptions to my theory. I have a sister, who along with her husband and one of their two daughters, was born in July. They live in Vermont and (hard for me to understand) they all love this time of year (skiing and snowshoeing and such).
