In the Wintry Mountains

We are up at the cabin in South Lake Tahoe right now. Have been since Tuesday afternoon. It’s been totally lovely—snow keeps falling and blanketing the world. Lucas was a little sick for a while, but he’s better now. Some beautiful friends have joined us for the weekend. They’re all outside playing at the moment. I’m stuck inside because Asher’s napping. S’OK though because he’s sweet. I’ll post more about our week up here later on.

I’ve done a bit of work on and off this week, but nothing too strenuous. I’m trying to figure out what direction I want my career to move in. I’m pondering some possibilities while wondering where my next freelance gig will come from. I can tell you this: I like being unplugged from a corporate schedule and I have a hard time imagining ever going back to one. Working in the mountains, when I choose to, sure beats a daily commute to Cubesville. 

It’s funny when the winds of change blow into town. So much of my life is carefully circumscribed right now. It’s hard to know what is just a momentary wish and what might be a deeper yearning for real change.

    Sounds gorgeous, so glad you’re having fun.

    And you know, I was thinking about when you first dove in to working for yourself, and how it seemed to me like you knew it was the right thing, despite all the changes going on in your life. Something tells me you’ll know it when you see it.

    Take it from someone who lives there: don’t go back to Cubesville.

    Thanks! It truly has been a beautiful vacation. We elected not to return today–too much weather. We will be heading home tomorrow.

    Some new venture thoughts are brewing. It’s enticing to let my imagination wander into new directions. Perhaps it is the right time. Thanks for the encouragement.

    You are so welcome. Hope the trip home today is safe and simple.

    Truth be told, I’m getting bored with my work, so it’s inspirational to read here about what you imagine you might do next.
