On the first of each month, Cynthia Newberry Martin hosts a guest writer in the series “How We Spend Our Days.” I’m honored that Cynthia chose me to feature in July. I write about nature, inspiration, and literature in this short essay How we spend our days:
If lucky, I think of Tao Porchon-Lynch, dancing, teaching yoga, and writing into her nineties. “When I wake up in the morning, I know it’s going to be the best day of my life,” she says. “I never think about what I can’t do. Make sure positive thoughts are the first ones you think in the morning. And never procrastinate.”
Also, Cynthia crafted a generous overview of my work and writing process in this blog post.
Thank you Cynthia for your devotion to the writing life and for supporting other writers.
