And the Rest is Necessary

Curating a Creative Life — Sunday Sabbath

Have you noticed that when a day or a week has included more things for which we did not plan — more work, more emergencies, more obstacles, more stress, more, well, life — we tend to try and squeeze even more into that day or that week? Not more of the extra things that showed up without our permission, but more of the things that got squeezed out as a result. Like maybe more writing (if like me you happen to be a writer), or more reading, or more family time, more, well, the things that make us feel good.
