The Race is On!

leftOn your mark, get set...go.... Holiday Hysteria...ho...ho...ho! Wouldn't it be nice if we could freeze some time during this busy season? Not just to get more done, but a way to preserve the quiet moments necessary to keep our sanity? A timeout to sip on coffee or hot chocolate while we watch snow flakes gracefully float outside. Or a moment to simply release a deep breath in front of a fire with a relaxing glass of wine. Sometimes, even a walk outside can do wonders for our attitude and repair some of the damage from the hustle and bustle. We found this leaf frozen in the lake, suspended in time. I feel it's proof of how nature calms and soothes by example. I may need to remind myself of that as I prepare to enter my book: Sowing Northern Fields, in Romance Writers of America's, Golden Heart Contest.
