I’m sitting here in my front room, watching the snow fall. When I woke up the snow had just started, adding splotches of white here and there to the brown and yellow landscape outside. It’s been a few hours now and the snow has covered everything but the sidewalks and roads. I’m sure, given another couple of hours, those will be white as well.
I don’t know what it is about the first really good snowfall. I’ve always loved it. Everything that just died and changed colour, which in this part of the world isn’t the lovely medley of autumn colours that some places get. Then the snow comes and everything gets covered in a fresh, clean layer of white. Even the sounds of the street and the noise of the city becomes muted. I love it!
At this time of year, I’m usually looking forward to quiet nights in, avoiding traffic because, well, let’s be honest, snow is beautiful but it causes havoc on the roads. This year, my life has gone a bit topsy-turvy. I haven’t written much on here lately, as you may or may not have noticed. The last few weekends I’ve opted to focus on rest – hard to come by these days – and writing or editing my work, to get more out there for you. And for me. 🙂
I’ve decided to take a bit of a hiatus from writing here. I’ll still post and update when I have something worth updating about. I’ll notify everyone when I post a new story or when something new gets published. For now though, I just can’t see myself dedicating much time to writing stories, let alone updating a weekly blog. I’ve got to get my second job going (fingers crossed on that one) and I need to sort out some other personal… Stuff. Rest assured, I’m well, I just can’t put too much energy into other things right now. Fact of life. We all experience it sometimes, right?
In any case, I hope you all check back from time to time to see what’s new. I hope you all keep well and safe during the oncoming holiday season. For now, I will go back to watching the snow and wondering how much will fall in the next 12 hours or so.
Take care and happy reading.
