This winter has been especially snowy here in northern New England, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now. I don’t know if that’s contributing to my own desire for extended hibernation or not, but I’m not complaining. When the latest winter storm cancels my plans, I’m happy to stay at home. I’ve been moving slowly, relishing some inner changes that are rippling outward through my world. Dreaming, and drawing, and playfully planning some exciting things for this year.
You’ve heard of the slow food movement? I feel like I’m part of some kind of slow creativity version. In a good way.
It’s nice to just be, to play and explore my inner worlds and let it all unfold slowly, slowly, and with positive intentions.
How’s your winter going?
I usually post my favorites on the weekend, so you have some time to dive in and enjoy the links. Just another sign of moving more slowly, I guess. If you’re too busy today to explore the links, save ’em for your time off, when you can relax with a hot beverage and explore some uplifting reads. Enjoy!

Be your own buddy. It’s much more fun.
Stay close to the pace of your own delight. I guess my delight is strolling slowly through the falling snow!
Encouraging your resilience and forming a habit of savoring life.
Oooh, a new book list! I’ve read 7 of these, and heard of a few more, but it definitely added to my (huge) to-read list.
