Drive, or lack thereof

Drive. At the moment I have none. Summer is the best time for tuning out, turning off, shutting down. I’m up before the rest of the house, enjoying a quiet cup of coffee, thinking about how I will fill my day with nothingness. How often do we get to do this? And what a luxury this is.

Europeans get this. Americans don’t. Two weeks of vacation a year ain’t enough to find that space of nothingness. We need downtime. We need rejuvenation. It’s good for the soul. And good for drive when it’s needed.
