There's a lot of snow here in Denver, and I'm currently ok with staying inside. In fact, something a writer needs to worry about a bit is being a hermit. It's all well and good to communicate by email and chats and tweets, but face time with other people is very important.

Study faces and expressions. Listen to tones of voices. Smell other places: coffee? wet wool? seaweed? Taste the rain or snow or the salt and humidity in the air. Feel the crunch of leaves or crusted snow or sand under your feet.

Being a hermit can limit you to your own thoughts and environment, and we all need to fill the well...with people as much as all the other sensory input.

May you enjoy interacting today.
