As for me, I will be taking the opposite approach this summer. I will be disconnecting. No internet and no school. Not until August (well, I will occasionally check my email). After finishing my M.Ed (this friday), I need time away from personal inquiry and writing. I need to let it all sink in. The best way to do that, in my experience, is to put it out of mind. Sure, it will sneak in there every now and again. I will get ideas, and I will jot them down. But, I hope to have the strength to let them go, and to just enjoy the moment as they happen. If they are great ideas, they will return to me when I need them.
This summer I plan to:
- Read nothing but fiction and poetry.
- Write nothing but fictional stories and poems.
- Watch and make films.
- Bike rides.
- Trip to the park.
- Climb a tree.
- Hike and walk.
- Enjoy each moment.
I guess I do have a summer project.
See you next year.
