Turning stones that are just around the corner
As heavy snowfalls paralyse air and land traffic, we have an opportunity to rediscover the joys of living, working, shopping and getting entertainment locally. Innovation is not always about getting new features and going farther afield for work or holidays; it can be about simplifying our lives, merely walking a few hundred meters away from our doorstep, and turning stones that are just around the corner.
Considering snow as an inconvenience will not help us much. Besides, as George Santayana puts it:
“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”
Winter is upon us: let’s make the most of it.
Happy Winter to those in the Northern Hemisphere; I’m sure those in the Southern Hemisphere will ignore George’s advice a little while longer 🙂
