"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Where are you from? What is special about your country? Where have you travelled to and where do you plan to go?
I'm in India right now and plan to travel around south India in the next couple of months before returning to Nepal in January where I tend to stay several months each year. I love living in Asia. Apart from the fascinating culture and beautiful landscape, I love the freedom (often chaos) and climate here.
