Chilly Nights

Chilly nights. We have the wood heater going. The addition of another room last year has meant the house doesn't quite heat up the way it once did. Those days we'd have to open the door or window to let in cooler air! It's nice to be so cosy.

What makes for comfort?


We keep hearing here that the GFC is over, but really, it seems to me it's still here. One of the areas it's showing up is in journals. A number are putting out requests for donations on top of subscriptions.

Journals, magazines, online publications, all keep writing alive- as well as the many, many blogs.
And its great diversity.

Perhaps it is one of those times, like the Depression in the 1930's, of enforcing a re-evaluation of what's most important in our lives.

Being Busy

Being busy these days. It's so easy.

Some days it's overwhelming; email, texts, blogs, social networking; catching up.

But like the slow food campaigns, today I'm going slow, and enjoying that; the sun slants in, the dog's in her basket near my feet, my wife's preparing another wedding. That makes for a good day.
