The world is covered in snow over here. Noise is muffled, the light is different, and life in general has slowed down immensely. It’s like a blanket keeping the earth warm, hiding the seedlings preparing for spring deep down in the dark, ripe with possibility. Sheltering what is to come soon, so soon. And while I am no fan of the cold, I enjoy looking out on this calmness as well as listening to the sound of new snow under my boots, children’s laughter in the park, and the stillness that comes with hardly any traffic on the roads. It feels a bit like the calm before the storm, since many plans are forming in my mind for this year, and have been for quite a while. 2010 will be big: We will move into our house, we will take our first vacation as a foursome, we both have big work things going on this year, and I hope I will get a better idea of what I want to do with my life.

So I’m trying to mirror the earth, gathering my strength to be ready when it’s time for the things that are coming to unfold before my eyes.

  1. I discovered your blog somewhere along the way during Gwen Bell’s Best of 2009 challenge and just wanted to drop a word of hello. I’m also in Hamburg and remarking about how the constant snow has really changed how I feel about the city! Best of luck during all the big transitions and plans for the upcoming year.
