I’ve been in a self-imposed time out.
My intention, when I started this email list & blog, was to send something interesting and/or useful to my readers every two to four weeks.
I had grand plans of sharing book recommendations and recipes and letting you know what I’m working on. A couple of months ago, I sustained a major upheaval that necessitated buying and renovating a house, and moving into it. Since then, I’ve been nesting and healing, resting and reading, and generally treating myself as well as possible. I’m on my third cup of ginger tea as I write this.
So thank you, dear readers, for not leaving my email list and blog! I thought of you several times over the past few weeks, but I was unable to face the blank email template long enough to form words.
Yes, I’m living at Shangri La now. Shangri La originally referred to a fictional Utopian place popularized in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon, by James Hilton. I’ve always considered the name Shangri La to mean ‘Happy Place’.
