David!

Dear Dave:

The holidays have been super. I really enjoyed every single minute of every single day I had off.

I think I enjoyed them a little too much because as you may have noticed I got L A Z Y. I wasn't posting as much as I felt I should.

You, of course, being a good partner didn't say a word...until...I went skating on Boxing Day.

Our city has this really lovely skating rink in Victoria Park with a shack to warm up in, free skates to borrow and the nicest staff. A very dear person suggested a skate date and I didn't even hesitate.

Should I have stayed home and written? Maybe. But you know what? As important as writing is to me I think getting out in the world and finding material to write about and experiencing life is as important as the actual act of writing.

Sounds like I'm justifying.

Maybe.

Kevin and I got our skates on, stepped outside and began our laps. It was evening and a very comfortable temperature. The city lights were twinkling. The whole experience was magical...

And then I noticed D A V I D in the snow.

You may as well confess that you came out and wrote your name in the snow at the rink as a hilariously passive aggressive act to prompt me to get my fingers dancing on my keyboard again. It was you! Wasn't it?

I don't mind if it was. Sometimes we all need a prompt or two.

Hope your Christmas time was magical too.
Love, Ang
