I’m buzzing a bit today for a couple of reasons. One is that I’m on a juice fast and my brain seems to be zipping along a bit faster than usual. I was inspired by a friend to do the fast, and figured that the week running up to school holidays would be the perfect time for a serious detox effort. It has taken my mind off the school holidays, which is a great thing. I do find myself worrying a lot in the run up to them, only to find myself really enjoying them once they are upon me. The pattern of life in the holidays suits me to a tee. A loose schedule of nothingness you can either fill or not fill.
The other ‘buzzy’ thing in my world, is that MindBodyGreen has just run a piece I wrote. Besides some poetry I had published in an obscure university magazine, it’s the first thing I’ve ever written that’s been published. And I feel really proud. It’s been doctored quite heavily, and that was a surprise, but none the less, I am pleased with myself for starting to put my stuff out there, and getting to experience the joy as a writer, of seeing my name in print.
