The Sleeping World

Some weeks, words don't flow easily. My mind is quiet and still, and no matter how I search for the right phrases or the right ideas, the page (or screen) in front of me remains empty.

This corner of the world remains frigid, and winds bluster through the bare branches of the trees. This time of year, I think, is meant to be spent curled up under a blanket with a cat and a cup of tea and a loved book - wouldn't three or four months spent in hibernation be delicious?

I braved the cold air today and snapped a few photos in the garden. Everything is barren now, and brown, and will remain so for many months. I often find it difficult to find energy in such an empty, still world. How do you find inspiration in the dark months of winter?

The cold weather just makes me want to curl up next to the fire with a good book. Maybe it's best during these months to look into the creative projects that we can do at home. In San Diego at least it's sunny so it gives me some excuse to get out.
