I’ve been in a fog of sorts – thankful things are settling into a cooler season, mind spinning on too many projects (as usual).
NaNoWriMo starts in less than a month, the anthology deadline is closer than I realized, and there are a few contests (Writers Digest, a few others) I’ll probably talk myself out of. Otherwise, committed myself to enjoy two art classes -one painting, one photography this weekend. That’s the start of the ‘playful’ front.
In the world of practicality, there was a useful article I finally read, and a mindful one that has me pondering some habits. Joyful splurging includes a new recording by The Piano Guys and a wonderful collection of authors’ books (Mari Collier, Stephen Matlock, Victoria Bastedo to name a few) to continue binge-reading sessions when sleep would be more logical.
What have you discovered when you fall out of habit/routine? Does it take a while to get back on track or is it quick , say after a good long nap? What do you do to get balance back? Are you all work and no play, or is your life the other way?
What is missing that can be found? What discoveries have you made?
