January 26…

Hang in there. Fall in love. Saw this on my Tumblr feed which I rarely check anymore but thought it curious. There’s a blizzard raging here on the east coast, and while I agree with the “hang in there” advice, I got a little lost with the “fall in love” part. Then I remembered that it’s about falling in love with wonder. Here now, it’s the wonder of nature despite any inconvenience. The silence and beauty of snow falling never fails to inspire me, and I hope I never outgrow this sense of innocence and playfulness. Silliness too – as I am well stocked up on the usual storm non-essentials – popcorn, wine, peanut-butter cookies…

January 25…

Blizzard!!! I admit it – I succumbed. Went out into the crowd and bought supplies to make soup and cookies. Dunno if I’m really gonna do it – my heart is in the right place, but my head and feet yell out – you need a rest – not another project. We’ll see. Tonight (Sunday) I am going to watch an old movie with Joan Crawford and Robert Montgomery and imagine myself wearing a long slinky gown, tossing my head into his gaze…
