Not Feeling an ‘Invincible Summer’? Reggae for Winter Blues

I’m definitely feeling the East Coast winter blues. Even my excitement for boots and chunky knits is gone — I’m ready for maxi sundresses and aviators.

In the last few days I discovered Ziggy Marley’s Love is My Religion album, which is pretty fantastic, and while it’s not a replacement for a beach trip, it’s certainly a nice reminder of warmer weather.

It also reminded me of an Albert Camus quote I’ve always loved, “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.” But I didn’t realize there was a second part to the quote until I went looking for it the other day.

It continues, “And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
