WOWSA … it’s the first week of the year and winter blasts have hit much of the U.S. The two things I love, love, love about kissing Winter Solstice is that a few minutes of “daytime” is added each day AND … we are moving toward summertime. A happy dance for me.
But, here’s what’s cool about winter— it’s hunkering downtime. For me, my hunker down is to finish book #36—How to Create a $1,000,000 speech. Where will I be hunkering down? Drum roll—on the balcony deck of my cabin in the Caribbean. Yes, a happy dance with ice tea, water, and sun. My kind of place.
