This morning, I sat down to write with a scatterbrained mind. I had one of those moments when I don’t know where to start, and so I don’t start at all.
Maybe it’s a moment when I can only write in bullet points. Using a list format sometimes helps me to put everything in order.
-A few weeks ago, on an unseasonably warm on Wednesday, I spent the last hour of sunlight running around Druid Lake. It was lovely. Tee and I then met up with an old friend at Artifacts Coffee (looooove Artifacts) and listened to a bluegrass band playing for a fellow farm’s fundraising event. #heart #body #spirit
-I’ve been in a reading rut. Sometimes when I’m in a reading rut, I need a light, fast read to snap myself out of it. Luckily, Mindy Kaling’s new book recently came out. I finished it in a day and found it light, easy, and funny. #mind
-A college friend visited from NYC last week. It’s always wonderful to have a few hours of catching up with a dear, old friend. #heart
-That friend became the third person to insist that I listen to the soundtrack to Hamilton, the Broadway musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton. I can’t stop listening to it – I am obsessed. #mind #spirit
-I drove home in heavy rain one day last week and was rewarded with a gorgeous Maryland rainbow as I drove through Baltimore County. I love rainbows; rainbows remind me to be mindful and grateful and in awe. #soul
There’s been a lot of #heart time for the past few weeks, which is lovely – Tee and I have had dinner dates and out-of-town visitors and family time – but sometimes, a lot of #heart food means less #soul nourishment for me. When things get busy and hectic, it’s a challenge to carve out time for solitude. And for people like me, we really need that alone time to recharge our batteries. This morning, it’s all about the soul – writing, reading, coffee, and the bliss of quiet Saturday mornings.
