Very soothing and provides a renewed joy for the winter months of solitude and reflection. I recommend reading this now if you are in a cold location. It helps. ( )

Thought I would have had all the ideas about weathering, er I mean wintering.
I would listen to this again, maybe once a year. For me, some deep appreciated insight.

This is not a self-help book. It is a rumination by the author who experienced a series of misfortunes in mid-life. She seems to be developing self-awareness after illness and career crises. She hunkered down and engaged in self-care. I really wanted to like Wintering but the author is self-absorbed and has to work hard to empathize with others until there is a severe crisis. She couldn’t comprehend that her son was having difficulty in school despite being told multiple times. She actually laughed at her husband when he became ill with what turned out to be a ruptured appendix and was annoyed that he was disrupting an outing. Her own illness was not severe but it was to her causing her to abandon her job which she hated and seek out various experiences to get a grip. The author doesn't reveal until nearly the end that she as Asperger's which could explain her lack of care for other people. This may be thought provoking and helpful to some readers. I’m just not one of them. ( )

The writing in this memoir is beautiful, but the subject matter feels disjointed. Some sections are about parenting, others about childhood, and yet more sections about depression. It reminded me of The Year of Living Danishly, but it lacked the humor of that book. It was more sparse and bleak, which was appropriate considering the subject matter, but had less of an impact on me personally.

“Wintering is a season in the cold. It is a fallow period in life when you’re cut off from the world, feeling rejected, sidelined, blocked from progress, or cast into the role of an outsider. Perhaps it results from an illness or a life event such as a bereavement or the birth of a child; perhaps it comes from a humiliation or failure. Perhaps you’re in a period of transition and have temporarily fallen between two worlds. Some wintering creep upon us more slowly, accompanying the protracted death of a relationship, the gradual ratcheting up of caring responsibilities as our parents age, the drip-drip-drip of lost confidence. Some are appallingly sudden, like discovering one day that your skills are considered obsolete, the company you worked for has gone bankrupt, or your partner is in love with someone new. However, it arrives, wintering is usually involuntary, lonely, and deeply painful.”

“If happiness is a skill, then sadness is, too. Perhaps through all those years at school, or perhaps through other terrors, we are taught to ignore sadness, to stuff it down into our satchels and pretend it isn’t there. As adults, we often have to learn to hear the clarity of its call. That is wintering. It is the active acceptance of sadness. It is the practice of allowing ourselves to feel it as a need.” ( )

I was a bit concerned as I started this that it would be about how she hated winter, my favorite time of year, but it was more quirky and enjoyably so. Her prose is lovely and is interspersed with stories of her somewhat confusing jumble of a life. It seemed a perfect read for this time.

This timely memoir details seven months that the author, suffering from a mysterious illness, spent sequestered at home. For May, who saw life as “linear, a long march from birth to death,” the enforced hiatus comes to feel like nonexistence. Yet it inspires unusual investigations—into hibernating animals, deciduous trees, the cultures of places with long winters, and the ritual pauses that once shaped human society. May’s message isn’t about how to be cheery during a personal winter but about how to embrace the “negative presence” of these moments, and to allow the rebirth they naturally engender. “We have seasons when we flourish and seasons when the leaves fall from us,” she writes. “Given time, they grow again.”

Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed

The speculating rooks at their nests cawed

And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flowers of grass,

What we below could not see, Winter pass.

Edward Thomas, "Thaw"
