Pre-Summer Break

In a happy café, in a happy, old routine today. After several months of fairly intense work, I finished a ton of stuff by some deadlines yesterday. So today I'm taking it easy... just browsing the Farmer's Market and having a nice sandwich and frozen coffee in an old school neighborhood café.

I have the joy of more work that I can get to when I'm ready to feel productive, but since it's the end of the month, I've got a bit of space and I can take it at my own pace.

It's the last Friday of the school year. Thank God. Another one down, and a well earned break coming up!!

Hope everyone is looking forward to summer as much as I am. :)

Cardboard Lunch

For lunch, I am eating a sandwich in a gluten-free bakery. It is a huge mistake!

My Best Efforts

Lately I've been wanting to write here more often. For a long time, I took a break - and it was wonderful. I had a lovely feeling of space and independence in my life. I worked hard at my other projects. I'm quite proud of myself for getting more clients this year, and increasing my workload; it feels good -- productive and self-sustaining, responsible, all of that. It's often quite time consuming as well. But lately, I miss the fun of writing stuff, just stuff. Just for me.

Indeed, 2014 has been a busy year. Strange and unexpected events keep occurring, and my energies keep being directed in all sorts of good and necessary directions. But I love writing here. I love the warmth of it. And maybe I love the kindness of it too -- the feeling of being open and caring and trusting in the good part's of life's flow.

I thought I might try some little essays here - short bits. And maybe some poems again, which I haven't been moved to write for quite a while.

And maybe some fiction. Compact pieces are always fun and satisfying.
