For years, it seems, the dark seasons have been my time to be out and about -- visiting and doing all the things in the community and with friends that most folks do in what is, for me, the busy summer season.
This year seems destined to be different. Not only have I been pulling in during the summer, but I am feeling a stronger need, even, to pull in more as autumn approaches.
There is the garden to finish and put to bed, the house to weatherise and secure and after a year of living here, what needs to be done inside and the priorities are beginning to show themselves.
But even more so than this, am I looking forward to much time of solitude and thought. So if you don't hear much from me, that is likely why.
I will respond to prodding for a sign of life, and will try to do so not as a hibernating, grouchy bear... but I may not have a lot to say. Doesn't mean I care about any or all of you out there any less.
