A New Season

It feels like back-to-school time even though I'm not in school now. I guess that some things never leave you and it is "back-to-school" time of a sort. Most people have gone or are going back to school and work after the summer break and life heads into all things fall. Labor Day was this past Monday back home and we had a bank holiday here on the Monday before, so now my mind has clicked over into this new season.

My summer was good. This year we finally got quite a few hot days, so I soaked it up. Nothing huge happened, but the nice simplicity of warm summer days was welcome. I spent quite a bit of my time job hunting to no avail, but hopefully something will turn up soon. It is what it is.

Hey, if there's anyone out there who'd like to hire me or who knows of a job, let me know! Drop me an email :)

I didn't spend much time at all on my book this summer, mostly because of my job hunt. As many of you know, job hunting takes up a lot of time.

Now that we're moving into this new season on the calendar, I've decided to move into a new season personally too. I'm going to do more of what I love. I've missed writing and I find that it's at the core of who I am. The absence of it during the summer reminded me so well. I'll be getting back to my writing a lot more and finally finish my book and also I'm going to read more. Words have always given me solace, so that is where I will turn as I go through this rough patch in my life.

I'm going to return to that which has given me joy all of my life...creating, writing, and reading. Therefore, I'm making room for more of these in my life...

And I'm going to drop back into the world that I'm creating in my book, so there'll be more of this...

I'll still be job hunting and I'll stay ready for when the job comes, but I need a bit of balance. Both sides of my life...the job hunt....and my creativity need me to give them my time. This will serve me well because I'll be happier and more productive.

So it's "back-to-school time" for me and that means a new season in my life, after the beautiful summer :)

Have a great day and new season wherever you are!
