I feel like I've gone into hibernation mode a little bit with the failing of the light. North Dakota winters get very cold, dark, and deadly icy, and I'm not sure I will ever get used to that. So I'm trying to concentrate on the bare essentials of what I want to get done before 2022 hits the calendar. I'm aiming to have at least two fully revised Agent Regalia chapters finished.
But sometimes, I feel like I'm all out of me. Stories, inspiration, even a single word worth the telling, all hollowed out and gone. And that's okay . . . really, it is! Some days, it's time to relinquish the quill and just listen. To take in the world, family and friends, the gemmed shine of someone else's creativity pinning itself against the shadows like a tiny sequin star.
I think it also helps to nurture both the body and the imagination, which is why I am thrilled to have stumbled upon the elegant ambiance of this local Victorian-themed teahouse and cafe. I do so love any excuse to dress up fancy!
