Happy Tuesday and welcome to our hop. This week I came up with the challenge:
It’s the middle of the winter and the lack of sunlight and the cold (for many of us) is difficult. What do you do to get out of the doldrums?
I guess my answer is going to be pretty obvious. I read. Or I write. Both of those transport me to another place, sometimes another time, and I get to ‘hang out’ with new friends (and interesting villains). Just the other day I was thinking about what an incredible gift it is to be able to read. It is amazing to look at a series of letters which form words and be able to set my imagination soaring.
In fact, I decided I am going to volunteer to teach reading to someone who can’t, because I cannot conceive of living without books and the joy they bring. If I can share that with another person – well, that would definitely be great.
Sometimes I get caught up in the day-to-day and get sad because the weather is cold and gray. I forget how blessed I am. But, I wouldn’t mind a little sunshine.
Let’s pop over and see what the fabulous A.S. Fenichel does to pick up her spirits.
