light hearted


Is it the contraction of cold that makes everything feel pinchy and vice versa?  I hate to think my temperament is temperature driven, but the data will out.

This morning (unlike Monday's breath-squeezing shiverfest) was perfectly, softly chilly -- no bitter bite.  Result?  Tonight I'm bopping about wrapping gifts, listening to music, playing with the dogs and feel equally soft, happy and light.

Perhaps there's no correlation, but I think the fact is that I am super sensitive to the physical environment I am in-- the light, the air, the space, the color--- it affects me, probably more than I should allow it to.

Oh well-- I'll work on that in my next life time.


Tomorrow I am pulling the shutters tight at Squam HQ, something I have not done, ever.  Two weeks of holiday during, um-- the holidays!  What a concept.  To say I am very, very, very excited about this would be a very, very big understatement.

My only goal is not to let my inner critic get any airtime when it wants to point out how utterly unproductive I am being .. .  ha.  One goal.  (A singular focus generally works best for me, so I am thinking the odds are good that I will have myself some damn fun with very little productivity).

We'll see . . following whatever calls me and who knows where that will lead?

bisous, e
