As sure as Spring will return

Moss peaking from snow last Spring

It's been a hard winter, and it's not over yet. Through the curtain of icicles outside my window, the sky is filled with falling snow. It's beautiful and depressing at the same time. It's been a record-breaking winter and I can feel it's weight.

Today and tomorrow I'll be housebound.
Today is February 1.
Today I start writing a blog post for every day this month. No excuses, no procrastination. I'm just going to do it.

I'm going to look at this as practice. Warming up. Getting the juices flowing. So I have no idea what I'll be writing about, but I will be writing. I'm also just going to include links to interesting stuff.

Today there is a lovely photo essay from Nikki Magennis on the too-long dormant F-Stop: Expose the Naked I blog.

An interesting article that I missed: The uses of erotic poetry. Thanks to Jacque Zyon for linking to this on his blog.

Beautiful pictures and inspiring words from Gina Marie.

So, I'm glad I decided to commit to writing here each day this month. I have various writing projects in the works (or in dreams), and I hope writing here will be the lubrication I need. ;)

Thank you, Robin. My whining about a little rain seems ridiculous as I watch storm after storm hammer the rest of the country -- and world. Hang in there!!!

I have had such a hard time finding the head space in which to write lately....you inspire me!

Rain, snow, what have you, it's still midwinter.

Thanks - I do find it hard to think that I inspire anyone.

You inspire me with the way you dream, as I do, with the seasons. You inspire me with your words and your musings and images. You inspire me by immersing yourself in the world of poetry. And you inspire me by living your words and writing your life. In fact, yesterday morning, after I read your post, I was finally able to settle down and actually write something! I'll post it this evening. HUGS!
