Leaping forward, falling back
Last week in San Francisco it was sunny, warm and glorious. This Monday I'm sitting in my desk in a huge sweater. I finally gave up and turned on the heater.
I have my first vaccine appointment and have made plans for TWO trips out of town to visit long lost friends. That makes me feel sunny, warm and glorious.
But I am lost and confused about my writing life - fiction is scary, dark uncharted territory. I want to put on a big sweater and curl up by the heater.
It feels like 2021 is going to continue delivering moments like these - radiance and fear, hope and discouragement, progress and failure. So, as I pilot my raft down this uncertain river, I'm working on being grateful for whatever's before me.
Here's to embracing variety!
