I had a wonderful vacation in the wilderness watching fireflies in the evening and swimming in ponds during the day. I am now more than ever convinced that this type of time away is an essential part of being human.
Now, however, I am having a hard time finding the motivation to step up to the level of discipline that I had before this two-week side track. I am hoping that today as I schedule my new tasks for the week, I can find the motivation to get back on track with my reading and summarizing that needs to get done. I have 6 more weeks before a new schedule with teaching prep and other commitments will come my way. Perhaps that will help whip me into shape quickly!
