I’m finally nearing the end of two months of constant busyness (I hope), and my December calendar is beautifully clear (in comparison), which hopefully will mean more frequent blog posts and writing in general. All of my journals have been feeling empty these days…
In the meantime, a brief update on a number of things I’ve written about before:
- I did not do NaNoWriMo. This was a good decision. I still want to write a book though, at some point in the future. It will likely be about the home search, or something like it.
- I am enormously thankful for many things, among them: wonderful friends that will both attend my crazy parties and entertain my wild musings, access to delicious local food and a system that supports its continued expansion, the health that comes from the latter as well as bicycling every day, and my wonderful Benjamin– we really do balance each other beautifully.
- Yesterday was a glorious and much needed relaxation day. Apart from shopping at the co-op for tons of fruits and veggies- I’m doing a cleanse between Thanksgiving and Christmas, sort of a combination of this and this– I napped, went on a walk, finished The Heretics of Dune (the marvelous fifth book in the Dune series) and watched Pirate Radio, now my most recent favorite movie.
Be good to yourselves this holiday season, friends. Drink tea, visit with friends, and relax into the naturally slower rhythms that winter brings.
