Killing Frosts

Midwinter approaches -- this one is called Chronos, and it is seasonal in that Chronos/Saturn had his celebration at midwinter in Roman times. It plays on the time-aspect of "chron" by means of a heavy watch rim around the image, and the whole thing is based on a page out of the almanac listing Killing Frosts and Growing Seasons. The turning point of the year, the longest night, moves toward the return of the light.

I've been living too much in the outside world lately -- events and committees and dramas are getting in the way of real life! Time to hibernate a little . . .
