Color me absent lately (does that reference work or is it just for those of a particular age)? Between InkTober and NaNoWriMo I have felt like October and November have been their own mini 2020.

November has been a bit of a Ring of Fire. (I went down down down and the flames went higher or something like that…) I feel like this month has consumed me and we are only half way into it. It has been a challenge to write everyday. I am coming up on 22,000 words which is a lot in a normal year, but To keep my head above water in 2020 is saying something in itself.

I am depending more and more on my Spidey Senses here lately. There is so much chatter going on in the world that I depend on my gut to help me determine what has the ring of truth. I am tuned to a pretty high frequency and this is working well for me.

Our fall leaves are now blanketing the ground. They are losing their pliability and now crunch loudly under my feet. I love that sound, but if I am honest, this is my least favorite part of fall. The bare trees are a prelude to the briskness of winter. Predictions are for more snow than last year, but honestly for us, that will still not be much. The snow I am looking forward to. I think we need to blanket the world in something – it might as well be snow!

This past week was my mother’s birthday. I spent the day relaxing in the quiet and just remembering. I have been missing the strong wise women in my life. Thinking back to a post I wrote earlier in the week they are a huge part of my idealogical construct. They are the voice that helps truth ring through when the world would have me believe something different.

I will catch up on ‘some’ blogs, but for now, it’s back into the fire.
