January light…

Hello everyone,

I hope all is well with you.

I hope the cold of Winter,

deep freeze January,

isn’t getting to you too much.

I won’t lie,

I don’t like Winter,


some things about it,

are positives,

the quiet,

and most of all,

the light.

There is something,

about Winter light,

the pure,

crystalline light,

the kind of light,

that signals,

frigid cold.

Been an intense week,

looking at ways,

to do things,



surviving the cold,

the curfew,

the depressing numbers,

of Covid cases,

of deaths,


I won’t lie,

I am having trouble,

not being angry,

at people who aren’t,


I mean,


but, then again,

it’s easy for me to say,

it my comfortable,


with my comfortable,


I have people to talk to,

bounce ideas off,

I have friends,

I have a lovely caring,


I even have a,

gorgeous chubby ginger cat,

my life is good.

I don’t live in fear,

I don’t live on the street.

The people I am mad at,

are more the people,

who possess little,

social conscience,

makes me crazy…

So, when I go there,

I think of the fact,

that Catherine is coming over,

that we will have dinner,

watch a movie,


and that the light in January is,


Be well you all,

stay safe.

Later girls,
