Saturday mornings I drop my daughter off for her job feeding horses and I head to the local Panera to crank through a few hours of writing.
And, what do I do first?
Coffee! Because no matter how often I do this, I am still not a morning person.
Music! Because coffee isn’t enough to get the neurons firing. This morning it’s Husker Du
Wifi! Because… Well, really I have no real reason for needing Wifi.
Everything I should be working on is already on this laptop: Notes, Files, & Applications. Everything but the human connection. What is missing is the ritual of checking social media, the latest news, and affirming my place in the herd.
Morning ritual complete, now on to work.
