August 1, 2023
I write every day for me, it is a great joy. It is very much a flow. I try to keep a backlog of two or three posts. So if I don't feel like writing, if writing for me is not gonna be flow, that I have something I can fall back upon and put up. And that keeps writing for me consistently to be a form of flow that I look forward to and cultivate, and just make a central part of my life.
