7 Ways to Avoid Winter Blues

Those who don't pick roses in summer won't pick them in winter either.
-German Proverb

It’s 75ºF, the sun warms my face as I write this and the sky is clear and as blue as Lake Superior in the early spring. So, why would I bring up winter blues at a time like this? Well, here in the Upper Midwest, the days are already several hours shorter, the nights much …
