needed in the new year: new verve

In reading, running, writing on December 26, 2011 at 12:19 am

The winding-down weeks of 2011 have left me wound-down. There was much advance festivity and celebrating of the season with my daughter, as this is her year to spend Christmas with her dad. With only one day’s worth of exception, our advance Christmas-ing was much more laidback – more quality – than it’s been in years, I’m sure because I was more relaxed about the holidays … less determined to do every single thing on the long list of holiday possibilities.

So no complaints. But now that the celebrating is done, I’m out of steam … out of running, writing and reading steam. I need to find ways to regain my momentum.

Probably best to start small: One page read, one description on paper and one mile run? In other words … Read. Write. Run.

Then ‘Repeat?’ (in the spirit of that timeless shampoo bottle command…)
