Morning Pages 01

“Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*– they are not high art.

It’s Been A While.

What better day to dust off the old blog and write a post than a rainy January afternoon?
