Shifting seasons

11 Feb

For the past three days, it has finally felt like winter in Durham. Neither Dawn nor I are thrilled by this change in temperature but have agreed we will put up with it for at least a week before sinking into depression. It is February after all.

The colder weather has coincided with a busier season. My work travel has picked up significantly and our car is begging for a day off to rest. Dawn’s semester is in full swing as well with most classes feeling more like projects that require creative work and design. Thankfully we have found a new coffee shop to hide out in on Saturday mornings to catch up on work and relax a bit together. I can’t mention the name as we are keeping it as our little secret.

Both of us feel super engaged in our work and enjoy how it has ramped up. She actually wants to be in school and I really do love my work. We also miss the quietness of the holidays amidst friends and family. The word that keeps running through my head is pace. And I am dreaming about how to hold onto a good pace amidst quiet and busy times in life.
