Nike got it right.
Just Do It.
Brilliance in only three, one-syllable words.
I spend so many days busily living the norm. Whatever the time of year, days have a certain flow and rhythm, regular and habitual tasks, and the occasional moment of spontaneity where life feels a little more fun and free.
There’s also an on-going and ever evolving list playing on repeat reel in my mind. To-dos, yes, but also want-to-dos. Should dos. Wish I coulds. And someday whens.
Here’s where Just Do It must’ve been born. Maybe we all have such a list playing like background music in our private thoughts. And instead of just thinking and dreaming and planning and wishing and waiting and … hoping … we should just do it already.
Whatever it is.
As of this morning:
- write every day
- open an Etsy shop
- ride my bike to work
- morning yoga
- make a salad
- make do
- sit with it
- invest in photography lighting and a new tripod
- (see make do)
- mend that missing button
- take a pottery lesson
- experiment with photographing people (kids especially!)
- experiment with minimalism in photography
- walk the beach
- put down my phone
- finish that book
- train for another marathon (or half … or 5K)
- walk after dinner
- climb a mountain
Whatever shall I do today?

I could help/join a few on that list!
Walk the beach. Morning yoga. Running. Take a pottery class.
Let’s try a few.
Missing you my friend.
Headed to Woodstock Inn 😍 so I’ll be thinking of you while in VT.💚
Sounds great! Love the idea of a Vermont half-marathon!
