My Christmas cactus is blooming, but it’s only November. It hasn’t bloomed for a while so I’m not sure if it’s late for last Christmas or early for this Christmas.

Maybe it’s on its own schedule, not to be tethered by any calendar holiday.

Well, if my cactus can free itself from schedules, I can too.

I may be in a long winter, Game of Thrones winter long, but when it’s my time to bloom I will.
