Dear Blog Reader,
I can. Not. Stand. It. Any. Longer.
I was going to wait Another Week. Another Two Weeks.
I can not stand it any more.
It’s time to blog again.
It’s been almost two weeks. It IS two weeks, tomorrow. Since I last wrote a blog.
It has been a wonderful two weeks.
Very quiet. Very introspective. Very inward-turning. I have been like a bear in her den, sleeping. Pregnant. (Well, not really pregnant. Metaphorically pregnant. You do know that most female bears in the den are pregnant at this time of year, don’t you? They will give birth to the wee ones as spring eventually arrives…)
When one turns inward, one learns many lessons. One learns how important it is to rest, to pause, to rejuvenate. One learns that one cannot continue to share outward without turning inward. One learns of balance.
You are wondering if I’ve been snowmobiling instead of resting, aren’t you?
No, no, no.
I have been mostly resting.
These snowmobile photos come to you from Barry’s co-worker at our weekly newspaper, the L’Anse Sentinel, Chris Ford. He hasn’t been resting. He’s been zooming around in the Upper Peninsula snow. He’s been air-born. He’s been riding our beautiful white snow.
I really would have lasted longer without blogging. Truly. Except Chris sent these photos. (OK, I requested ’em when Barry told me about his adventures.) Except my mother-in-law said she missed hearing what was happening in our life. Except almost every day part of me wanted to be blogging, sharing, creating.
Except…I missed all you guys.
Truly missed you.
I promise to get the camera out again. To peer around in our beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan and share What’s Happening.
Thank you for supporting this short winter respite. This mini-hibernation.
Happy Winter to You!
(And please share what YOU have been doing in the past two weeks. Anything new? Any new insights? Any snowmobile rides or quiet walks in the woods?)
