Winter has a magic and peacefulness all of its own. It stirs a sense of wonder in me and I relish its stillness. It leaves me longing to be cloistered in my solitude creating and surrounded by the warmth of loved ones.
My family and friends are strewn all over; and while I often think of them, I’m not always the best at staying in touch. Modern life and technology provide a lot of distractions that do not help make up for the distance. Lupus is no help there either, but this year I was able to finish this project I started years ago and get it ready for printing on cards. I’ve enjoyed working on it tremendously.
Now, I am just waiting for printed materials to come in, so that I may spread some holiday cheer out through the mail!
