Wrapped in your robe, you stroll down the garden path. The day is cold and frost coats the plants and stones, but you know warmth and comfort awaits.
Ahead steam wafts over the pale blue waters of the bath. Hot water pours through bamboo spouts, and minerals crust the stones surrounding the bathing pool.
Shedding your robe, you lower yourself into the water and feel the warmth flow through you. As you rest in the bath, snow begins the fall, the flakes disappearing when they meet the heat coming off the waters, even as your stress fades away.
