It was just so nicely lit…

Well, it’s December now. I mean, not that it feels like it here in the land of sunshine and warm weather, but the neighbors are making up for it with the extravagance of their lighting displays. 

I wish that I had something to write about, but my mind keeps slipping off into distraction. I’m forcing myself to write this post anyway in an effort to cultivate the habit. All of my attempts to write today have been mediocre and frustrating, but I’m just so motivated to write that I keep trying even when the results are rubbish. Does this happen to other people? That the will to sit down and write is irritable but nothing comes out?

Out of the blue, I found myself thinking about an old friend from my days studying abroad in Scotland. We’d fallen out of touch, even to the point that I hadn’t sent a Christmas card for a few years, but she came to mind so I turned to Facebook in the hopes of reconnecting and was delighted to get a response on Facebook messenger nearly right away. It’s been so long since I’ve been out in the wider world, out beyond the US borders, that it’s nice to have a reminder that there’s more to this earth than my own small world. Maybe this will be just the excuse we need to reconnect. 

Anyway, it’s Friday at least. Busy weekend ahead- hopefully this motivation for getting things done lasts.
