Work: Traveling along the Oregon coast for two weeks this month took me out of my usual writing and exercise routines. (For more on the latter, check out this blog post.) Most mornings, I had to choose whether to write or exercise. Road trips require more sitting, so I often picked moving my body over writing. Once at my family reunion, being with my extended family was the priority. Little progress was made on my book during these two weeks and that was okay.
How do you balance the immobility of writing and moving your body? Do you try to write on vacation? Do you purposefully take writing breaks?
Wonder: Why don’t people skip? Instead of, say, jogging. Or in addition to jogging. Why isn’t skipping one of the usual ways we move our bodies from point A to point B or for exercise or for fun? Definitely the last one because I don’t think it is possible to skip and not smile. Try it. Skip a few times.
Did you smile?
Windows: The view from our trailer windows during our trip along the Oregon Coast included alder trees wrapped in ivy, bushes of white flowers and red berries, chipmunks, fluffy bunny rabbits, a meandering creek, fellow travelers and their RVs and tents, and this unexpected neighbor:
