As I watched the days get gradually longer and the buds breaking forth on the trees and bushes, my spirits started to lift a bit. The approach of spring will do that.
Next week my sweetie and I will take a little trip to the coast, visiting family and enjoying the Olympic Rain Forest and other hidden treasures. It will be great to get away and relax, play and have time together. Maybe this vacation will help chase away the blues and maybe even help restore my desire to write!
