I ran across the blog Daily Routines via Boing Boing recently and was instantly rapt reading the detailed accounts of the days of many a famous artist, writer, and even President Obama (who exercises at 6:45 a.m. every day). They can allow an intimate glimpse into the lives of some really interesting folks. Some people, like Winston Churchill, had a rigorous daily schedule that never varied. Others are a bit more loose, like author TC Boyle, who starts his day “with the L.A. times and the Santa Barbara News Press.” The “rituals” are even subcategorized by habits like drinking and procrastination. I may not be as rigidly planned as some, but I just can’t start my day off without a freshly pulled latte and at least ten minutes in front of the computer. All this talk of ritual begs the question — what’s yours? –Megan B.
