I love this journey of daily writing. Yes, I've missed a couple of days here and there, but I feel like here, 4 weeks in, I am coming around to a new way of looking at this blog, and at my life's trajectory. And when this month is done, and I let go of the daily compulsion to write, no matter how aching and tired and dull I am, I hope I will retain the habit. It's become a habit.
There will not be a lot of quiet in the next few weeks. Farmer's Market, kiddo's birthday, St. Nicholas, Christmas, Reindeer Day, and so on, and so on. But quiet is what my soul craves at this time of year, what I need to survive.
Perhaps, this can provide it. Maybe in sitting down to talk with you all, and to let you in on my latest doings and offerings, I can find that moment of quiet. After all the talking and the work and the storytelling and preparation... maybe then I can just be.
