Ever have a conversation with someone, and then a day or two passes, and then suddenly you actually hear what that person said? My friend had said, "I think sometimes we just need to throw something out there to create a distraction and get some space." I believe we were discussing relationships. But I suddenly realized that this is exactly what my subconscious has been doing around work. Throwing up distraction after distraction in a desperate attempt to find an empty room, lock the door, and take a breather.
But distractions do not a life make. Even Old Man Horoscope came knocking today, and he said:
"Your fantasies are important now as long as you don't let them get the upper hand. Dream about the future, but remember that you must live in the present."
Phooey. Does that mean I'll never be named Queen of Norwegia, or given a Nobulitzer Prize for Peaceful Writing? Fine, so be it. No real words of wisdom today, just that half-baked observation.
To make up for it, I offer you this pretty tulip that's been keeping me company all week.
What about you? Full steam ahead, or are you feeling any sort of malaise? Getting enough sleep? Eating your vegetables? Flossing regularly?
