Marfa has become our magic place over the past couple of years (you can see a recap from last year's trip here and here)... It's the perfect spot to regroup as the summer break winds down and we start gearing up for the school year and all its attendant schedules and commitments.
I was getting caught up on the Olympics yesterday in between projects and caught an interview with Michael Phelps right after he won the medal that made him the most decorated Olympian of all time. Bob Costas asked him what he was going to do to prepare for his remaining three races now that he's achieved this major milestone (or something like that...you get the gist). Phelps paused for a second and then said, "I'm going to go back and get some food and some rest."
Gotta love that the world's most decorated Olympian is keeping it simple. So I figure if it's good enough for Phelps, it's good enough for me. Come Wednesday, I'm going for the food + sleep action and until then, I'll swim like the wind.
