THIS IS YOUR WAKE UP CALL
Tuesday, September 13, 2022 - column #7119
Some mornings start with a flourish. Some are like a flat sparkly drink left on the counter overnight – flat, without fizz or sparkle. I used to think that difference correlated to the amount of sleep I’d had the night before.
That’s a simple answer, but I think there is more to it; some days, I am exhausted, sleep deprived and still leap out of bed to re-board the project rollercoaster. Conversely, some days I am well-rested and still want to lay in bed to read, doze, or click away channel surfing in 9-minute intervals before an alarm goes off again.
It’s that we get up or even that we leap, but there is something we strongly desire to do today.
If I don’t immediately leap out of bed to do it, I prefer to get up anyway, and then figure it out along the way.
Thanks for recalling that great advice…fun hearing the story behind it too, SF, Lethbridge, AB
Hi Mark! This column reminded me that writing is not always easy. Was there a person in your life who sparked your creative journey? There was a teacher in my past who taught me how to take the words from my head and transfer them to the page. I pay tribute to him in my latest blog post: https://jmaydaze.com/2022/09/09/the-art-of-fine-writing/ Thanks for your words. I read them every day, JM, Seattle, WA
