Weekend Coming

May 7th, 2009 by judytalks

It’s Thursday afternoon, I’m leaving town tomorrow, mid-afternoon, and it’s time to pack. I pack early.
AZ. is in the triple digits, but there’s a lovely breeze, and I’ll venture out later when it’s cooler.
What do you do on weekends? Something planned, something spontaneous? Unwind with friends?
Friday night has always been crash time for me. I started this habit in high school with Friday night dates, continued through college, and haven’t been able to break the habit.
You may have a different crash time, but it’s important that you unwind sometime. I know people who can’t be away from the computer or cell phone for even 6 hours. The crash comes hard for them.
Creative people say that they do their best work during total relaxation. The head clears, the mind rests, and the creative juices can flow. As a writer, I have to bond with nature when I hit a dry spell. Nothing snaps me out of it better than strolling through a nature center, garden, or park. Waterfalls or babbling brooks are especially effective.
When times are tough, it’s difficult to relax and unwind. We feel compelled to race to the finish line, whatever that may be. A depressed economy puts people’s moods in the dumps.
Take time this weekend to renew yourself in a garden setting or a walk through the park. Let your senses awaken and breathe it all in. You just might get some terrific creative ideas.
I wish you well.
