A long week

An archway at Mount Sutro

It’s been a long week. And tomorrow morning, Lisa and I go back into the studio to record the next few episodes of our podcast, Should We. Part of me wishes I could just sleep in; I feel spent. But another part of me knows that the closer to the bone my perspective is, the realer our conversations are—and we know our listeners hear and appreciate that. So I’m trying to see this tender, tired state as a gift; a way to bring a different kind of energy. And if I feel more buoyant after sleep, then so be it: that will be real then, too.
