Camp, in the Midst of Winter

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” Albert Camus

IMG_0615 IMG_0614 LOC winter 1 IMG_0613 IMG_0611This is my favorite quote. I can’t help but think of summers at Lake Owego every time I read it. Right now camp is full of snow but you can still hear the sounds of summertime. Sounds of laughter and chants still linger in the air. At home, we are studying for tests, working hard, running around getting ready for the holidays, feeling the chill in the air and maybe a little stressed. But, as Albert says above, no matter how hard the world pushes, we have something stronger grounding us and helping us push right back, our hearts, our friends, our memories of camp, something stronger.

Happy Owego Wednesday,

Melissa
