This is my newfound ritual. Wake up without the sound of an alarm. Make myself breakfast from scratch. Brew the good coffee in the french press and read every interesting article in the New York Times. The plan for the rest of the day? Maybe a nap. Maybe a book. Maybe a movie.
Time slows down when I slow down. Deadline will still be there at the end of the day. At least today, I have luxury of taking it for myself.
