one fine dae: the days are cold, the nights are long

According to the winter solstice, days should be brighter and longer from now on out, but it certainly doesn't look or feel that way from where I'm standing. I'm really dreading winter.

Mornings are especially hard this time of year and all I want to do is linger in bed ever so slightly longer as the weekdays progress. Life is a bit up in the air for me these days. As much as I want to embrace this uncertainty, who am I kidding? I always need something to keep me grounded and lately I don't have an anchor holding me in place, which makes me anxious. I'm wrapping up a project soon and need another to fill my days. And there's also the daunting task of culling most things I own to prepare myself for a much-needed move. There are so many things on the horizon, and it sucks that I can't control the timing of them all. 

Sigh, at least there's still photography to help me capture a bit of beauty in the most repetitive of tasks.
