embracing the expectant silence

Do you hear it? The hush of the season - it's here.

I started feeling it last week, in the middle of finishing those 50,000 words, I felt - no - craved an embrace with this expectant silence. And then, my dear friend Mandy introduced her new eBook, an advent companion ::

and I knew what I would be doing during the month of December.

I've spent the better part of two and a half years learning what it means to wait. With adoption, and quitting my job, and publishing my novel, it's been day-after-day of hurry up and wait but now...here...I pause.

I'm not sure how many times I'll post here during the next 31 days. Most of my time will be spent reading (I have a stack of books - no really, a stack of words waiting for me) and diving in and learning what it means to process through paint.

But most of all, I am returning to what I know to be true for me: waiting until the words fall hot to spill them here.

Will you wait with me?
