After another grueling day of phone calls and problem-solving, I went for my daily walk this afternoon. Today was the day that, with everyone’s positive encounter, there was another tugging at my heartstrings. I needed to recharge and refresh my energy. I walk to think about my book, argue ideas, and spy on my neighbor’s Halloween decorations.
Today was a slow, drawn-out walk where I saw trees turning and flowers blooming. This is rare in Alaska- it was brilliant, it was beautiful, it was like the world was welcoming death.
I say all this to say that I was asked why I don’t write in a journal daily. I thought I don’t have anything to say- but after reading other readers ‘ day challenge, I have decided I am going to tell you, readers, what winter is like here in Alaska- day by day until 1 March- when the world wakes up for us. Ready for the challenge? I am!
