This has been a very long week. And it’s only Tuesday. The combination of rain, cold, and the sore throat-sinus thing I have, plus the fact that my Tuesdays don’t end until class is over at 10pm has made for a particularly long day. The thing about my job is that there are no reprieves. There isn’t even a lunch hour. I eat at my desk as people bustle in and out of the office I share with three others. So I’ve come to enjoy small luxuries- sitting for a moment longer than I need to in my car before getting out, being able to close the door behind me in the bathroom. Today I especially needed it. During the moment that I could just be still, my mind drifted to the white beaches of Mexico or to a cabin on a small lake.
Once Steve and I once stood on a bridge that connected the Isle of Skye to the rest of Scotland. The sun was setting on another day. The last rays were illuminating the shoreline. We were so aware, so happy to be alive and standing completely in the moment. Surely we are put on earth for much more than working and making ends meet, yet it consumes most of our lives.
Day #23- Just two miles today, but it was hard going. The air smelled like worms.
