The long, bright days of summer give my days a kind of high-intensity fever pitch. Since I was a little girl, I’ve had trouble sleeping this time of year, too.

While it’s always nice to have a lot of energy, sometimes too much is, well, too much.

Sitting down and turning inward happens best on gray days. Living in Prague provided a perfect setting. With its moody skies and cold weather, writing was as natural as breathing.

So what to do in the sunny South?

We’re having rain at last; the grass is recovering and those rainy days are good for writing.

On the sunny days? There’s nothing wrong with drawing the shades.
