Is it winter yet?
Hit black ice on my way to work and wondered if I'd stop 20 feet past turn! But the skies out west were blue and it cheered my spirit. Before I got to work the skies above were sunny and I was able to get my lunchtime walk in today as the sunshine cleared the main roads. It was lovely, I was getting warm till I turned back to the chill and I could feel my cheeks brighten. I needed that sunshine more than I needed food or rest. The days are growing so short and my time so restricted. The dogs decided to craze me back over as the sun went down...barking at the honking geese...playing door games...I'm sure you've been out three times and haven't you been out four? They're asking to go out again but I've shushed them all, I'm winding down and need to keep a single focus for a moment and half. A Christmas letter was really appreciated today. Cousin's son was married in September, I hadn't heard, was someone expected to fill me in? Positive family tales are so soothing in the bleakness of this recession. It's so easy to only hear those trials and hardships that challenge our core beings and keep us from moving forward. As usual I hadn't accomplished my intentions today, but I did move forward...maybe tomorrow the camera will come out again.
