Donut Days

This blog is supposed to be about “realizations of scale,” but some days I just don’t want to have any big ideas. Some days, I just want a donut.

It’s difficult to stay mentally “on” all the time. It takes a great deal of cognitive discipline. Turning it “off” can be a challenge, especially at the end of the academic school year, when all the students I work with are pushing their brains to the edge. That ability to turn it on and off–it’s a nurtured skill.

Today is a mental donut day. No substance. Not much going on at all. The switch is set to “off”.

The featured image in today’s blog was taken several years ago when the family participated in the Door County Century. Kait ate a load of donut holes that day. We titled this photo “Cocaine donut.”
