I chuckled as I looked over my blog; at the last post I had written, in particular. “A Year for New Words”, and yet I haven’t written anything since – almost a month has gone by. Of course, the saying holds true, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Not that I haven’t had anything positive going on in my life. But winter is winter. In the palm of it’s weather-chapped hand it holds dreary days made for thinking, musing, pondering…but not for writing. At least not writing about myself and my own escapades. I’ve spent January writing other things; things that have been coming along much more productively without the hindrance of holidays and vacations. Although those are welcome hindrances, after all.
Having emerged from the dark ages of January and into the still-snow laden February, I’m looking ahead at Valentine’s Day adventures, Spring Break Caribbean sailings, and hopefully a few batches of cookies and cakes along the way.
