As I keep plugging away at the current story, waiting and hoping for things to come together, I can’t help but hunker down. Baby, it’s cold outside! I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in upstate New York, in the Adirondacks, we’re talking thirty below at night. Ouch! What better place to be than my tiny cottage of a house, wrapped in a snuggly blanket, surrounded by those I hold dear? As someone reminded me tonight, we are one more day closer to warmer weather. Before you know it, the thaw will be coming and blossoms will be popping up next. I can’t wait until my leaves unfurl and I can tilt my petals to the sun as they truly bloom. At least I can be sure that my roots are firmly planted. For anyone else out there who is freezing their tootsies off or simply wants a tropical haven, enjoy this incredible view of Bora Bora! I’ll meet you there in my dreams!
