Chicky, little chickadees...

Just saw the picture of a chickadee and thus the title of this blog post. So much change in the past week from hurt to despair, from warm weather to arctic blasts, from storms to howling winds with no rain or thunder, from love mixed with laughter to tears rolling down my face. Ah the juxtapositions.

I am much better than I was last night albeit I am chilly. Last night I listened to the blues, soul, jazz and rock. There may have been some other genres mixed in but I went to hear songs I hadn't heard in years and some I had never heard at all.  It was an uplifting experience.

I am still mired in the blues but feel less like Smurfette than I did. This is a good thing. I am glad for any little portion of relief as I traverse these murky waters.

I made chicken vegetable soup for dinner, it was warming and nourishing to body, mind and spirit. Since dinner I have had two cups of hot cocoa, how decadent is that. I live my life on the edge do I not! LOL!!!!

I will be trying to get myself ready for a big editing event in March. I am nervous as I am not sure that I am ready to really cut loose, edit and revise my novel. The time really is now or never. I don't think my brain will allow myself to commit to another major piece of fiction until I finish the novel and I am tired of writing trashy flash fiction although I might find the wherewithal to write some more BAD short fiction but the time is not now. For now I am writing my blog, journaling words that need to be saved and creating what I can as I can, one step at a time.

I guess it is time to close for the night. Be sweet little chickadees, be sweet.

Ciao!

to Mercedes...
Thanks for your note. I really appreciate it. I know that you are going through a difficult time yourself so it means a lot that you would take the time to write.

Thank you again,
