Schedules are irrelevant in the face of waning time. – Andra Watkins
Happy Fourth of July to my US readers! What are you doing to celebrate?
I’m floating the Edisto River with Alice and MTM…and alligators and snakes and other crazies. I’m hanging on the back porch with Dad and listening to him regale everyone with his stories. I’m eating BBQ in my swimsuit and singing America the Beautiful. I’m blasting fireworks in a graveyard at sunset, because the dead like to celebrate holidays, too.
I’ve been following the same Fourth schedule for a decade or more. Every year, I can’t believe it’s happening already. When my toes sink into Edisto River goo, I think I was there five minutes ago.
Why do schedules go faster and faster?
The mid-point of a year is a good time to reflect. What’s working for you in 2016? What isn’t? Did you start the year keen to make a memory, yet it still languishes on your list of good intentions?
One of Dad’s favorite phrases is “It’s your knitting.”
So get to knitting the memories of your dreams!
