I’ve been meaning to return to this for some time, as underneath all the turmoil of daily life and its activities there remains my desire to write. It just hangs out under there, poking its head up now and again, to pester me. Like always, in the busiest of seasons, when all of my other roles and commitments increase and my margins are so long since infringed upon that I don’t remember what they felt like, I pick it up again. I guess it’s my tactic of creative procrastination. And it is, temporarily, enough to overcome busy, tired, scared, and rusty. (Yes, I am. For example, for the link above I twice typed “procreation” before I got it right. Yes, disastrous. And now you also know why I’m scared.)
Stay tuned for a new series in Being Mommy. If you’re just joining in for Advent, please make free use of the Advent Readings for the Very Young (now with printable PDF), but consider yourself generally welcome.
