Will I ever forget the blizzard of 22? We were stuck home like so many others. But since we knew it was coming, we’d prepared.

That, a cat and my blanket and I was all set for a Hygge Christmas. I took the forced digital disconnection to catch-up on some reading on writing. I re-read most of Robert McKee’s, Story.
