Staying Active

Just as important as a full night’s sleep and strong cup of coffee, regular doses of inspiration are a necessary part of bringing new perspective and fresh thoughts to my work. Sometimes this involves escaping to the woods for a couple days or retreating to my room with a good book. Other times this is getting out into the city and being a part of things. You know, participating in the community and culture that surrounds me. As the weather worsens and my motivation to leave the house lessens, this all becomes a little more challenging but no less important.

This week is especially notable for great events on all ends of the spectrum, from surfing and local music to the celebrated small press literary scene, and I thought I would share and spread the word. The first annual LitHop goes down on Hawthorne tomorrow (readings and barhopping, the perfect combination), Shaping the Northwest is on Thursday and celebrates the work of local shapers while raising money for surf nonprofits, and Saturday features the Lonesome Billies Third Annual Family Tradition, a fundraiser for My Voice Music, a potluck and gathering of local country acts.

It’s going to be a busy and productive week.
