From on-the-the road in California and Seattle, in hotel rooms, and in flight, we’ve been reading your thoughtful ideas for taglines, posted in Comments or sent via email – lots of them! Even far from our home base, we feel connected by the community that has grown up around ‘the improvised life’ and awed at the generosity of its readers.

We were putting together a big post about it, with a list of ‘improvised life’ descriptors and taglines that happily boggle the mind, when we found ourselves exhausted, jet-lagged, running-on-empty. We need a rest, we thought…which is part of the deal, of writing, blogging, or making ANYTHING. You’ve got to give yourself permission to stop, and rest, in order to restore the flow. So we are, for a few days. We’ll be back on Thursday, having wandered around the Pike Place Market in Seattle, and drunk some excellent coffee, and recuperated from the red-eye home.

(Meanwhile, we’ve been taking notes on setting up a hotel room “camp” and strategies for surviving  on the road. Stay tuned.)

We offer this photo of duct-tape Converse All-Stars as a symbol of what is possible in any given moment.

  1. good for you! just hearing how more sleep makes us smarter.

  2. Sally, those don’t look quite like you. Although I must say, I have recently acquired a grey pair, so new, that duct tape does not look anywhere near my future.
