Sometimes, the things worth reporting are hard things. And you don’t feel like sharing.
I’m okay, we’re okay, everything is okay. But… it feels a little hard.
I choose to believe this is what we call, “Refilling the well.”
My friend Rachel laughed at me recently, when I whined about how I’m not writing well and I’m cranking, and watching too much TV. She said, “Laurel, this is part of your process. You do this a lot.”
I’d like to believe that’s so.
But for now, it’s about to be summer. The boys are finishing school, and I’m about to do a few last school visits before the end of the year. So we’re all heading north. In our new car, which is a 97 Volvo wagon.
I will eat snowballs in Baltimore. I will stare at the harbor. I will wander around, and take the two lanes. And laugh and reset my brain.
As is my process. I guess.
Happy summer, everyone!
