Kind readers,

my decision not to go to Leaky 14 was a good one, especially considering how brutal winter has been so far. The relentless cold weather has been draining me of energy and demoralizing me, to be honest.

But, thankfully, LUSH has come to my rescue! I visited the shop while wandering on the market the other week, and since then I have been turning my bathroom into a LUSH spa. Using their products has been helping me to relax, and has uplifted me… So far, personal favorites would include the Butterball bath bomb, Fairly Traded Honey shampoo, and Sympathy for the Skin body lotion. Marvelous things they are.

In other news, here is a detail of the first sketch Nezumi did for the image that will adorn the cover of Outlaw in the Land of Perfection:

I love the way she is bringing my two heroines to life! Her artwork is amazing.

I have begun working on the second draft. This book, my first novel, is my current priority.

Lately, apart from A Princely Calling: The Mystical Secrets of Severus Snape, I am finding myself reluctant to write non-fiction. My tarot deck project is on hold at the moment; when I do get back to it, I shall probably redo the first three cards.

I have had a tendency to take on too much at once without fully realizing it. But I have been endeavoring to adopt a healthier, less draining approach, and have been tackling less projects.

Those who have been curious about Blessed: How to Be a Joyful Mystic can now read the first half of the book here. In that book, I share my spiritual journey, and describe the process that has brought me to where I am at this point in my life.

Your devoted
Logospilgrim, the quiet professor

  1. I often want to hibernate in the winter too. I end up in periods where I’m semi nocturnal, moody fluctuating between high energy and mopy wanting-to-be-aloneness.

    I have read that in arctic cultures, its normal to increase sleep in the winter to 12 hours or more, with a brief 1 hour period of wakefulness in the middle of the night for writing, sex, or some other activity: http://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/1h8kzu/sleep_cycles_has_any_world_culture_slept/


    • Thank you for sharing all the interesting links, my dearest one!

      I cannot imagine rising in the middle of the night to do anything… I would have trouble falling back asleep. These days, I go to bed around ten thirty or so, and I do sleep longer than in the spring…

      Ah, spring! Not much longer 🙂
