Morning time, another piece from my show. I love my morning ritual of quietly reading and drinking coffee or tea. I find I just feel better for the rest of the day if I spend some time before starting work relaxing. I wish my cat could live with me right now, and that I had a kitchen table, but I do have a pretty nice place to read anyway. I just finished the new book of stories by Karen Russel, it was fantastic! (My favorite story was Reeling For The Empire, which was beautiful, and creepy as hell.)
My mom just came to town and she's staying two weeks! I don't get to see her very often, and she hasn't come for a long visit like this in a while so I'm so happy and excited I feel like a holiday has been declared! Actually, I've been so busy recently I've been neglecting my morning calm time, and I can feel myself burning out. This is the perfect time to recharge.
What is your morning routine to get ready for the day? I'd love to know!
