It happens every year. This weariness with the gray, the cold, the smog. Where is the sun? Everyone has a restlessness feeling stuck in this gloom. A little rain is coming today. The ground was wet when I went out to fill the bird feeders, but it looked more like condensation than rain.
Oh for a blue sky, sunny day. Jenn's talking about taking a trip southward. It's a good idea.
It does feel good to be back in a familiar groove at work writing manuals and help files instead of doing support for the new software. We lost an entire holiday season because of it, but in retrospect it doesn't seem like a big loss. The transition goes on and will for some time yet. But so does new development and upgrades to our hundreds of custom apps, and that means documentation is required. Writing is what I want to be doing and I'm glad to be back at it.
