“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” – John Steinbeck
We have four seasons for a reason. Each season is needed for the Earth to heal and give plant, animal, and human life alike time to sleep before they prosper in the next season.
Without one season, we risk seeing the beauty and change of another. The removal of seasons would disrupt a number of things, such as an abundance of crops during certain seasons, essential mating seasons for the survival of wildlife and our planet’s ecosystem, and even humanity’s overall sense of self-reflection.
For these reasons, we should embrace all the seasons that we encounter, even those that we dislike. As the cold winter approaches, think about how the dormant weather will allow time for reflection of the year and what can be done to improve the next. Besides, we should also appreciate nature during the winter and make the most of it before it disappears for spring to come.
