Can there ever be too much summer? Even though the calendar says we have until later in the month, the start of September always feels like the end. We’d like a little more, but seasonal cycles prevail and the world returns to its regularly scheduled program.

What generates flow and that lovely hum? How do you get reconnected to your purpose?
Here are five suggestions to help you ease into flow:
