Mornings at the cabin in the summer are cool and still. It’s the time of day when I do my best writing and I’m pretty good at getting up early. Most days, however, I don’t take advantage of the first hours of the day to write. It’s coffee, news and social media time—even though I know better. On the days that I don’t write in the mornings, I’m resolving to get outside and work on things that would be much more unpleasant in the heat of the day, like weed whacking or working in the garden. But even those I could do after an hour of writing. So this is my reminder to write first thing in the morning. And now that I’ve written this, it’s time to get at that tall grass next to the driveway.
