I don't think it is officially summer yet, but it certainly has felt summery for the past few weeks. The heat is sometimes troublesome, but in general summer is my time of relaxation and release, and I'm grateful for it. The work year is always a bit too intense, with job, writing, night school, signings, children's events. It can wear at health.
So this summer I am being conscious of the value of rest, and trying to embrace peaceful thoughts.
Having said that, I must now be off to work. :) I'm teaching a little summer school course on creative writing. It's basically fun work, though, so it shouldn't interfere with my summer rejuvenation plan.
How do you use the summer to regroup?
