With every summer comes the obligatory melt. The melt that is electric in currency, that sparks creativity, as much as it does resignation. It forces us to slow down, to pay attention to our breath, to acknowledge (albeit in frustration sometimes) how our body moves and feels and to really pay attention to what it needs.

So as frustrating as it can be, “the melt” helps us self-regulate, and slooooow it the f&%* down, because as wild and hectic of a world as we think we may live in, it is no match for creation.

So here is to letting that frustration and resistance go, and to taking it slow, sexy & slow. -tM
