More spring snow

I've been a bit quiet this week, internally as well as externally. Seeing some progress at the PT testing was very heartening, but it has not yet translated into feeling any better at all, so it's still occupying much to most of my time and energy, physically and emotionally. Most related issues are not things I want to talk about much, but I will note that when you aren't sure if you'll have more than 15-20 minutes at the computer before the dizziness gets overwhelming, it's hard to get fiction written -- even if you do end up getting more than 15-20 minutes in that session, just knowing that it's often not working out that way has a dampening sort of effect, particularly on long and complicated bits of revision. Still, I've gotten small bits written on a short story, and several people who love me use phrases like "short-term medical leave" repeatedly and firmly until I might even start to listen.

It's snowing pretty hard here -- not whiteout blizzard conditions, but a good heavy spring snow. I think spring snow is even prettier than winter snow most times, when it's really snow and not the dreaded Snow And Rain Mix. Still, all thoughts of taking a spring coat to Minicon are out of my head now: winter coat, gloves, hat, scarf.

I will be away from the computer from about midday today until tomorrow late evening, and I won't be much on the computer Sunday, either. Be well and have a happy Easter, a happy Minicon, a happy whatever else you might be having this weekend.
