Goodbye, November

I can’t say I’m sorry to see November pass into the night. It was a month of ups and downs, to be sure. The highlight of November was going to Milwaukee to see and meet Mary Oliver. The downs would have to be my entire family, including myself, being sick for most of the month.

Today is a drizzly wet and gloomy day. It feels more like March than November. Winter is running late once again and I fear our snow levels this year won’t be much better than they were last year. This does not bode well for my desire to go snowshoeing.

Truly though, we need cold weather. We need the temperatures to dip below freezing and stay there if we are to get rid of all these viruses swimming through the air. And we need snow – at least for Christmas if nothing else.

Tomorrow is the first of December which means it is time for Reverb again. I’m excited for Reverb12. I can’t believe it has been two years since the Reverb that started it all for me. That’s when I met some of the most fantastic people who have become some of my best friends. To not participate in Reverb is inconceivable really – for me at least. I can’t wait to see what the prompts pull out of each of us this year.

My greatest hope is that it rekindles our communication with each other. This year has been particularly difficult for many of us and there’s been a bit of a disconnect online – compared to what we had the year before. I hope that changes with this incarnation of Reverb. *Fingers are crossed.

If you see my new header, you’ll notice the picture of the pumpkins. My friend Gwen is the artist. She said I could do whatever I wanted with this graphic. I love it. I love how talented my friends are and I love showing off their artwork. I know I change my blog a LOT. It’s hard to settle on just one look. And changing it up also spurs my creativity, I think. I have a little too much fun with Illustrator sometimes. 🙂

Anyway, here’s hoping you have a fabulous weekend.

And here’s to Reverb12. You can find out more about it here and here. Those are the only two I know about at this time. I’m not intentionally overlooking anyone else who might be posting their own prompts. I sincerely hope you’ll join us this December as we reflect, contemplate and renew our minds.

  1. I agree with you 110 on all accounts! I, for one, want to see 20 degree temperatures for the next 60 days. And snow. That would be amazing!

    Also, happy friendship anniversary to all of us!! XOXO Can’t wait for tomorrow!
