Let's face it, January was a bit rubbish. Too much grey, too little energy. Short on joy, really. I can't tell you how many times I watched this video, but it helped.
But February - now that's a different story! A bijou month which started exhilaratingly last night with getting to read at Platform, a bi-monthly poetry and music event at Ladybank Arts Centre, and carries on with other good stuff, including
a week away at Clachie (a cottage up Glen Clova) which will - really, it will - see the work-in-progress absolutely done (to a full first draft) (okay, so not really DONE done, but still done-ish)
two days of writing workshops with Arts Across Learning in Aberdeen
meeting up with the Reading Bus people there to get a new project off the ground
learning how to tweet (all right, not everything in February is going to be fun)
And not only all that, today the sun is shining! Pathetic fallacy or what!
Things are looking up.
