June 1 has felt like a bit of a New Year’s beginning. Starting this week I’ll have a new schedule and just on cue, the weather has turned hot in Houston. This change in the month/seasons has been marked in our family by this book. I have also given myself another 30-day challenge — which I may or may not share. (So far though, day two, and I’m still on track!)
I was thinking of coming up with a Summer manifesto. Maybe it needs to be illustrated and not just put on a post-it. But this manifesto will include enjoying every ounce of the longest days of the year (another reason I love June) by riding bikes and grilling out more. I know by August and September I’ll be shuddered indoors like it’s the dead of winter in Michigan, so I want to take advantage of not melting while I can. But mostly I want to create more… more of everything.
And soon I’ll get to create with words and hopefully with some of you. This week marks the start of the summer writing workshops, so if you’re in Houston, let’s write together (Tuesdays & Fridays).
