For two decades it has provided warmth.
Though now covered by a more fashionable gold brocade comforter, it is still there, familiar, comforting, consistent.
It has become somewhat frayed by time and use and moves and stains that needed washing.
On the colder nights it is not enough to keep the winter at bay.
But it is always there and always has been. It is known. It is part of life. And there are times when its familiar softness
Makes the winter much much easier to bear.
