Every winter, Sassafras and I hunker. It is a kind of hibernation. We make most of our income between April and October, and after October we have no income until January. We have learned to hunker. This is a process of doing nothing. Wherever we decide to winter, we simply don't do anything that will cost us money.

When in Florida one year, we walked the Atlantic Ocean beaches regularly. When we winter up north, we simply don't leave the house. One year in Ludington, MI., we had stayed in so long, when we fiinally tried to leave, we found the door was frozen shut. Snow had melted off the roof and ice stalagmtes were formed in front of the door. We had to go out the front porch to get outside and break up the ice, so the door would open. I guess you could call that 'power hunkering'.

The other option would be for one or both of us to get a part-time or temporary job to hold us over for the winter. Well, like that is ever going to happen. We like what we do and who we are. Hunkering is good. A lot of reading, game playing, business planning and smooching goes on during our hunkering months.

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come
