That looks so nice doesn’t it? A white sandy beach, a pink hotel, clear water, hot sun. I can almost taste the margarita and smell the salty air, and then I look outside and catch a glance of dead grass and bare trees. I am hitting my winter wall, probably exacerbated by grief and sadness (and again I can’t say thank you enough for all of the support), but it’s that time of year where this season is losing its appeal. Spring still feels like an eternity away, believe it or not it’s actually in 22 days (at least by the calendar standards). I know soon enough the days will be warmer and longer. My grief will feel less painful. More vaccines will be available and maybe life will feel a little bit more “normal.” Soon enough, but not soon enough, you know?
