Well, hello to you-
I’ve been working behind the scenes on my book blog again. I hope to get it up and running, truly, this year (I’ll provide a link when that moment nears).
If you’ve visited said blog at all, you know it includes a wee Latin lesson. A few days ago, the word was “Volare” . . . to fly, to fly away. For example, Verba volant, littera scripta manet . . . Words fly away, but the written letter remains.
Doesn’t it just make you want to break out your writing accouterments and pen a letter? If not, don’t tell me; I can’t know these things. Anytime someone questions sending things in the mail, I break out in hives; when they talk against students learning penmanship, I develop a nervous tick. It’s not pretty.
Needless to say, I do believe I’ll jot a note or two in the coming days. Seems the perfect activity for the weekend–the decorations have been taken down and stored for another year, the outdoor temps are freezing, and the crazed calendar of activity has flipped to a calmer month. I’ve really no recourse but to light all the candles, pour myself some tea, and have myself a long distance chat with a friend.
Whatever you’ve planned for the weekend, I hope you find some time on your hands. Not the kind of time that’s boring, mind you, or much-too-quiet; rather, time free and all to yourself . . . time to dream and plan and regroup. Time to set the new year up right . . .
With that, a most happy 1st weekend of 2013!
