Winter has been so slow and quiet. 

I've been unplugging from it all lately and trying to reconnect with simple pleasures again. 

Listening to music. Playing the piano. Appreciating the changes in light around the flat. Being present.

My mom is coming to Europe for the first time in her life at the beginning of March. I have a whole trip planned for her, starting with fish and chips, The British Museum and Stonehenge's inner circle tour at sunrise. I can't explain just how happy I am to know I'm about to see this woman in the flesh. In London. In my flat! 

Just a few more weeks.
