Merry Eve of Winter Solstice

Merry eve of Winter Solstice. And what a great time to begin a new blog. Not only is it the eve of Winter Solstice, but tonight the moon rises full in the sky and the Earth entirely eclipses it (over North America). NASA has offered a website to watch the eclipse, for those who are interested. And I plan to do so.

 

 

Now that is how one kicks off the Winter / Christmas / Hannukkah season. (Yes, I know Hannukkah is already passed, but I hope the sentiment still lingers.) So, before I forget, I wish one and all, of whatever religious or secular practice, throughout the networked world a very peaceful, joyful and wonderful season.

This is my inaugural blog on one of my favorite pastimes: writing. In this blog I will discuss writing in general, my writing in particular (with snippets and vignettes provided) and other writer’s blogs. I will also provide writing exercises and prompts for those who are inclined to write on the fly.

Since writing isn’t my only hobby, I might also include posts on oil painting and ecology or nature adventures, both of which are also pastimes I enjoy.

If you take a look at my second blog, Digital Substitute, which I am also beginning today, you will discover that I used to be an ecologist while now I am a teacher.

Digital Substitute is my professional blog; you can jump to it using the link I provided in my blogroll.

Thank you for visiting Stefras’ Bridge. I hope you enjoy my blog and visit regularly.

Truth be told, I hope to use this blog to also spur me on with my writing.

Merry Christmas everyone, and welcome to Stefras’ Bridge.
