I confess I have been having fun on this break. On emails, I have received notices from journals and competitions, with specific themes, such as: Spring and Lightheartedness. Oh goodness, I am not in either mood. Spring means another year of the garden(s) and Lightheartedness seems other worldly because I've been doing white knuckle driving for the past two days. So, I'm not sure if I can conjure up a mind of Spring, not yet. I'm thinking about today. We have had reports of a lot of snowy owls in the area and I want to see one. I plan on going for a long walk along the lake in hopes of finding Hedwig.
Some have seen several stationed on pier pilings at Charlotte Beach and Braddocks Bay. So in an hour or so, I will venture out.
