I’ve always valued variety, but also desire to be consistent with my actions, values and thoughts. As much as I try to develop stronger routines, I seem to crave occasional changes in daily routines. Changes in the world seem to happen at a faster pace, making it hard to stay consistent.

Writing consistent is certainly one example of something I have trouble doing consistently. More important than the desire publish regularly is the desire to use the time to clarify thoughts. It gives me a chance to think about what I really mean, as well as the opportunity to be able to look back and read my thoughts later. I’m much better at taking time to write in my handwritten notebook, but that tends to be more task oriented with some stream of conciousness writing. 

This time of year always feels significant to me, marking another year of both my own life and of this country’s. My birthday is coming up in a few days, and it’s nice to have some time to reflect while spending it in the place I love most, Nantucket.
