Slow down, you crazy child

After being employed as a writer for the past two years, I am trying not to be too hard on myself for taking a bit of a break with my writing/blogging. My mantra has always been to do a little bit each day (i.e. write a little bit each day) but the past couple of months have been a nice reminder that it's okay to take days off. Because it is.

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and am finding some new projects to focus on. Transitions should always be braced with enthusiasm. I'll get my daily pace for writing back again, and in the meantime, am totally content with taking little breaks, as it's clear it's been needed. As a way to not have this blog sit completely stale, here are some photos from the past several weeks. Enjoy.

 First time checking out Art Omi! Omi has been on my upstate bucket list for ages and proved to be worth the drive.

 Really a great moment. In the right place, at the right time, and in good company too, no less.

 Hiking in Saugherties. Walked through the woods for a couple miles, found a nature lounge made of rocks overlooking mountains. Amazing.
