Autumn heralds the season of decay; winter devours all that is green and bright. But we know that (hopefully, barring a major war and the subsequent nuclear winter), life will return, and the seasons, in places that have seasons, will begin their cycle anew with the spring.

But why the heck does it have to take so long?? I’m freezing! XD

Hello, everyone! It has been SUCH a long time since my last post. Nothing particularly important has been happening, so I haven’t felt the need to post. The new year arrived with minimal incident. I’m working on my plan for the new year. I didn’t make any resolutions, because they only end up getting broken, so instead, I’m thinking of ways I can add minor improvements to my life.

Over the course of the last year, I learned that I actually enjoy a number of things that are good for me. When I was younger, I couldn’t tolerate even the thought of leafy vegetables. I tried spinach, radicchio, endive, and a few other greens, and discovered that I really like them! So eating healthy has become a little easier. I also love yoga, and I’m thinking of trying my hand at other forms of exercise.

Meditation has been a large part of my life for a number of years, so I’m attempting to schedule at least a few minutes everyday to clear my mind and relax. It’s not always easy, but I know it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, so if I keep working, I can succeed.

I also need to find a source of income. Writing and other creative/artistic pursuits have become my primary focus, so I’m hoping to explore them more as the year progresses.

I hope the new year has so far been kind to everyone, and that you continue to prosper through the year to come!

Take care!
