Isn’t this lovely? Kinda looks like spring. But it’s the picture for January on my ‘your true nature’ calendar. Last night a cold snap hit us. Rather hard. So it’s time to plug in the vehicles, plug up the drafty places, plug in the heating pads, and keep on plugging away until our own personal woods starts to look like this one. We don’t actually have our own personal woods, but we do have grass and a tree and a vivid imagination, which is almost the same thing, but not really.
If it wasn’t Martin Luther King Day today in the U.S. it would be National Nothing Day instead. The former usurps the latter when they both fall on the third Monday of this gawdawful month. It’s a week away from Chinese New Year, and ten days away from Australia Day, followed by Holocaust Remembrance Day on the 27th and Vasant Panchami (a Hindu Festival) on the 28th. Calendars can be pretty damned interesting things.
