The simple wood frog ‘dies’ in the winter.
It’s body freezes, it heart stops. It’s body cavity is filled w glucose. So the cavity does not freeze. But the wood frog is frozen hard as a rock.
There are times we must die also:die to hope, die to fear and finally die as a body.
These are all welcome, freeing things; though as a friend says the dying has my dragging fingernail marks all over it.
Yet within a few weeks of being dead, warm temperatures bring the wood frog back to ‘life’ once again.
So we can also come back to life again!
