One Day or Day One?

Day ONE of course!

To be fair, that is not a real question. Okay. Well … it is technically a real question, but it was a rhetorical one. You might even go so far as to say that that, my dear friends, was a trick question!

Ain’t I a stinker?

I know. I know.

Hello, by the way. It is nice to imagine seeing you again. I know it has been a minute. What can I say? Life. 2020. Parenting. School. Illness. Global Pandemics! I suppose we all have our reasons for lying low this year.

I am here today, though. Here I am. I will be here more. I am not going to be broadcasting it (at least not for now), but my plan is to be here–writing & publishing something–as often as possible this summer. I need the practice. I need the routine. I need the discipline. Like a cup of herbal tea before bed, I need the ritual.

I hope someone might still visit now and again, but if 2020 has taught me anything it is to manage my expectations.

So I will hit publish with well managed expectations and sleep well knowing that today I did my absolute best to show up for myself, to follow through, and to make a step towards reaching my goals.

I hope you are well. I hope you are safe and with people who love you.
