Rainy days and Mondays, as the song used to go. Today we have both, and even news from family and friends has been gloomy. When there’s nothing I can change, I put on some music and light candles. and then try to figure out what to focus on next. There’s no shortage of things to do — it’s a matter of figuring out which one to tackle when my energy is low.

I already tried “nothing” and that didn’t help. I did much needed filing yesterday and am not in the mood to do more. (The truth is, I really like to file other people’s papers but not my own. 😉 I should be disposing of catalogues. And doing research for an article idea. Straightening. Dusting. Making phone calls. *Bleech*

Every now and then there’s a day that should be taken out of the week. Just hit delete and start over the next morning, right? Thank goodness there aren’t too many of them or the year would be over faster than it already is.

Maybe I’ll just tell myself it’s Tuesday. I’m getting to the age where that might work.

    Sometimes when we are in need of trying to find our next challenge, when there is no shortage of thing to be achieved, perhaps the best thing to do is not to turn things off, but just take a nice long walk, clear our mind, breath some fresh air, and then the next step comes to us in enlightened beauty and ease. Often, and I dare to say this myself because of my schedule, taking time to release ones anxieties is the most productive thing we can do. I also just watched a show about training our brains to rebuild themselves, and they stated that it was not in our routine that we learned, but through vigorous thought, not monotonous (Our tedious day to day). Anyway- there’s my two cents worth.

    Scott — that’s definitely worth more than two cents. It’s funny how a different perspective changes the view. And also how a simple post from a reader friend can make me feel so much better. Thanks muchly.
