Bahrija Day. I’ve retreated from the city into the wilderness for the next day and a half. It’s been an active day at Bahrija with visits, new people, shared meals and lots of talk of plans, hopes and dreams for the short and long term future of this place. I’ve spent most of the day doing some kind of work or another between meetings, social media campaign work and writing. I was about to get grumpy at some point during the day until my mind wandered to Maria Popova, the prolific, amazingly productive creator of Brainpickings. What does her day look like? Does she rest? What is her enough? Do we just need to get on with it until we get into the swing of creating? How much discipline is enough?
On that note, I’m finally putting away my laptop to have some time with these beautiful people gathered here.
