Holiday baking is about to commence – my favorite part of winter. Today was distractions from getting gift boxes together to mail, but tomorrow, by god/goddess, there will be baking. I’m going to make piles of yummy treats to give away as little bits of Christmas kitchen magic.
For the first time in a long time, there’s a Christmas tree in my house, and I love it. The warm white lights, the sparkly decorations; it all makes me feel warm and fuzzy and better, like maybe us artists and dreamers aren’t all just doomed. The wind is crisp and cold, it smells like snow, and I believe in miracles and wonderful things happening. It’s time to put some good energy out there and watch it circle back around.
