I haven’t written here – or anywhere really – since November 2013. If I’m being honest, that’s when my own long, brutal winter began. To be frank, the last year and a half has been a struggle that, some days, I didn’t think I’d survive with my sanity intact. And when you’re fighting so hard to keep it together in one area of your life, other areas of that life suffer, especially for an introverted Pisces like me. To say my creative juices were sapped from my heart and soul is an understatement. The thought of putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard has been too overwhelming in the last year. But Spring is upon us. It is a season of change. This long winter is nearing its end.
An opportunity recently came my way to reset the dial. In so doing, my heart and soul are a bit lighter. The words are coming back to me. My fingers are dancing across the keyboard again. There are stories that are waiting to be written. I hope you’ll come along for the journey again to uncover our family story.
It’s time to put the winter behind us and look towards the sun.*
