Solid and consistent

Last year we had one solid dumping of snow and then a gradual drop over the course of a few months. This year, it’s a consistent drop, and altogether it is the most snow I’ve seen at our place in a few years (although I had been away for the last part of the season for a few of those years). I know which one I prefer.

Only having to deal with something once and for all is a much better proposition than something popping up on the regular. However, the latter does keep you on your toes, so it might actually be better for you in the long run. It just depends on how you look at it.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
