As I type this, I’m watching the snow fall on our hilltop in Vermont. Just took the photo below. It’s quiet and still, with no wind. And it’s warmer than it was this past weekend. A great day for writing, and perfect conditions for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. I’ll get outside for sure.

Not terribly exciting but that’s okay. “Deep work,” as Cal Newport would say, is happening, and I’m never bored, even as I think about roses in the garden instead of in vases. March will be here soon, and spring.

Like so many of us, I’ve learned this past year to write plans in pencil, but I’m hopeful this February holds promise for all of us for fresh starts. Take care, and enjoy winter wherever you are!
