Summer is in full swing at our house, and for the first time in a very long time everything feels normal. We’re enjoying the slower pace that comes from our oldest being done school, evenings on our porch sipping cool drinks and digging into ice cream, and weekend days spent entirely outside. I’ve been unplugging more and more so that I can enjoy the warm weather and some quiet thinking time.
Given my recent post on feeling creatively empty, and my decision to allow myself to sink into summer and slow things down just a bit, I really enjoyed this article at Six Pixels of Separation on boredom. If you have a moment, go and read it. I think you’ll agree that it makes perfect sense.
Summer aside, I do have a lot of projects on the go, both personally and professionally, so I’ll probably be around these parts a little less over the next month or two. For now I’m off to allow boredom to set in and to spend a little time just doing whatever.
