On a Mission (Yet Exhausted!)

It's been a crazy week. My day job (as the Director of Education at a nature center in Denver) has kicked back into high gear, with spring field trips, spring break camps, Fireside Chats and summer camps just on the horizon, not to mention a huge new Earth Day event--which I am leading almost single-handedly. 

But I've also been crazy inspired this week, and that has translated into these mad, late-night writing sessions, where I've routinely hit 2,300 words in just a few hours. It's difficult to balance, but it has left me dizzy and electrified--kinda like that Gwen Stefani quote: “Sometimes it’s so hard to find what it is I’m trying to say. People might think you can turn creativity on and off, but it’s not like that. It just kinda comes out: a mash-up of all these things you collect in your mind. You never know when it’s gonna happen, but when it does, it’s like magic.”

It has been like magic this week, and I intend to write this thing out, even if it means I have to sacrifice sleep for awhile.

Has anyone else been feeling inspired this week? Maybe it's something in the air...
