Heart solstice celebrated early

translucent shadows

Well, December is trending toward ending. I am wending (soon) toward Montana. Perhaps I shall blog again this year; perhaps not.

What has happened in the first 19 days of the last month of the year? I won my second spelling bee. Not as many contenders, but Heather, who is a singer, was fierce at the end when we were the last two left. We had so much fun. I'm looking forward to trying it again in January. (If you happen to be a word afficionado (which Blogger does not recognize--so funny!) & you happen to be in the vicinity of Olive or Twist in Asheville on the third Monday of the month, dust off your letters & join in the camaraderie.)

I've also been doing some lovely organizing & writing & arting & photographing & dreaming & walking & etcetera-ing. Plus Derrick & I have been on a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine marathon. Lots of fun to reconnect with my buddies on the space station.

May your trails wend through curiosities & joy. May the light within your heart increase by 3 minutes a day, starting now. (Why wait?)

Blog alternative:
220. Drape something pretty over a bedpost, if you have a bedpost. One of mine is decorated with with several necklaces made by the lovely & talented Elise Matthesen & a hat that says Semper Fi. (Hey, pretty is in the eye of the beholder.) (If you don't have a bedpost, how about a lamp or a newel post or a coat rack or...)
