Real Life

We have been getting loads (and loads) of snow round these parts the past couple of days. Road closures, abandoned vehicles, two-week waiting lists for snow tires, and a revised "cm expected" tally from the weathermen on an hourly basis. The office looked like a ghost town the other day, with the patients cancelling last minute or arriving three hours late for their appointment! Turn back while you still have the chance!!

I am having a "deep thoughts" week, and I have not felt like blogging, or like reading any blogs even. It's been silent on the home front, that's for certain.

But I have not fallen off the face of the earth, never to be seen again. And I am not suffering from some creative writer's block, as my moleskine can readily attest to. I guess my mind has just been somewhere else.

The snow fall is tapering off today, but the roads are still a mess. I have a baby shower gift to make, and a weekend away for which I must pack. And a brain to turn off...and a tough email to send...wish me luck.

"Here he was, adrift in this great river of suns, halfway between the banked fires of the galactic core and the lonely, scattered sentinel stars of the rim. And here he wished to be on the far side of this chasm in the sky, this serpentine band of darkness, empty of all stars. He knew that this formless chaos, visible only by the glow that limned its edges from fire-mists far beyond, was the still unused stuff of creation, the raw material of evolutions yet to be. Here, Time had not begun; not until the suns that now burned were long since dead would light and life reshape this void."
- from 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke
