Red beans and rice, with a little diced ham and Cajun seasoning, makes a cool winter day bearable. It's that time of year when I have to force one foot in front of the other. So much easier to curl up in bed with my laptop and scribble the day away. But it's also the holiday season, and there are early presents to buy and friends-from-afar to mail to.
I dream of blazing dessert suns or a cruise on tropical waters. And I live in Florida. Snap out of it! i say to myself. You have to enjoy the slow-down time and take comfort in what you will. A cup of hot tea, the chance to make a friend smile. A story idea that engages your mind for blissful moments.
