I Got My Mojo Back!

(picture I took of one of my Maxine cartoons) 


For the past two weeks, Vern and I haven't been able to go on our walks because it's just been too darn HOT!  My part of the world has been experiencing 100+ degrees (Fahrenheit) for about 10 days in a row. Although it's been much less humid than normal, it's still uncomfortable. 


Last night it finally occurred to me that Vern and I could walk really early in the morning before the oppressive heat arrives. I wake up early anyway....so duh! We walked at 6:45am and it was bearable. Thank goodness, because I really needed that, both physically and mentally. 


I've been blaming the heat for my lack of creative thoughts because I couldn't seem to write anything for my memoir, or e-mails or snail-mail.


But, guess what? After our walk this morning, I got my Mojo back!

Yeah, Baby!


Neither heat, or humidity, or anything else, is going to interfere with my writing. If you've lost your Mojo, I hope you get it back soon!

  1. They say that exercise does boost brain activity, so it makes sense!

  2. Good for you,Becky. Yes, early morning and alone helps us prime the pump of our mind before sludge takes over!

  9. Yeah, it's been that hot down here in Mexico too! My husband and I do as much as we can before the sun gets too hot. Glad you found your mojo!

  10. My mojo is still MIA - perhaps I'll get a leash for The Boy and take him for a walk around the block?

    Kidding, people, really. He's too big to drag.

  15. I've had a hard time getting in my walking and exercise because of the heat also. The heat really does drain your energy.But you've inspired me with your energetic spirit so I'm going to try and get my walk in...tomorrow...at the Mall... in the afternoon. I'm not quite as motivated as you! ;)

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
