“I Dreaded Winter Until My Newborn Taught Me to Embrace It.”

Does winter with it's long dark nights make you feel sad and eerie?

My latest illustration for the TIES column of the NYTimes

is for an essay about a writer, who had a deep dislike for winter. It changed when she became a mother:

"Those long, dark, cold winter nights I had feared more than childbirth itself became something I hadn’t known a night could be: a haven. A shelter."
