There is no post today because:
1. Monday was a snow day and it was too cold to get the kids outside. Coming off the weekend and a string of cold days, they were quite a bit stir crazy. My only creative thoughts on Monday were about how to put together a dogsled team to pull a sled made for one, what to pack and whether it would be better to arrive somewhere or to fall nobly off the sled into the soft drifting snow while the dogs pulled on. I might have opted for this last except I worried the visiting shitzu would notice and come back to me. I would awake not to the pearly gates but to the eager tongue of the animal dropping connoisseur on my face.
2. Tuesday was full of commitments.
3. Two people I know are suffering under the ravages of an unkind disease. Sometimes death is beautiful and people write books and poems about it. Other times loving people and their families means there isn’t very much to say.
