Back again, in my happy place. I wonder what the future holds, but for now I content myself with being wrapped in my comfort blanket. It feels comfortable, it feels easy. Work is as productive as relaxation is plentiful. The mornings and evenings are cool, trending toward cold. The front deck bore a thin layer of ice this morning. But the sun shines and in the distance the mountains, dusted with an ever-growing coat of snow, loom large, protective and beautiful.
