Summertime Rythms

Everything works better when we are in tune with our own inner rhythm.

Slow starting days, long, creative nights, this is what summer is for me.

And to honor that rhythm means not expecting myself to be different suddenly.

Although I can and do wake up earlier if need be (to go to the beach, or meet a friend), I'm not going to be at my best before the afternoon and I know it.

So, today I'll write later. After the day is done and the stories unfold.

Today, I'll give myself a moment to be. I'll give myself the gift of a day with my kid, playing and laughing and taking photos. Tomorrow he'll be in school for the week and the rhythm will be different. But today, let's just be.

What does your Monday look like?
