Such a marvellous sight!
It’s almost Christmas Eve. A few days need to go by, but we’re almost there.
This year, hubby-to-be, kiddo and I chose a different place to celebrate the North American Holidays season.
From Christmas to almost New Year’s Eve, we settled down in a little cozy, sparkling with wonderful art cabin, just a sigh away from the St Lawrence River, nearby a little village on Ile d’Orléans.
When I first started to write this post, no moon shined on the ice crackling on the shore.
However, stars did. So many stars, so bright in the frigid minus 20 degrees Celsius.
Such a marvellous sight, dear fellow writers, not only did I feel the need to share, but it made me wonder about the power of travelling and its impact on my creative writing quest.
