Celebrating a Year

June 28, 2012

with 6 comments

This is not an easy day to get through, neither here nor there, not yet or still in one place functioning smoothly. I work in fits and starts, easily led astray by the butterfly of distraction. Luckily I have appointments to focus me, but then a flat tire to confound me, an eye infection to annoy me, and a swarm of questioning emails to confuse me. The mind travels at its own speed and will not be rushed into admitting that it has arrived at the same moment as the body. I have learned patience with this process of re-entry, and I pull it out now to remind me not to push too hard or allow frustration to turn this into something more than just, as I used to write in my elementary school diary, a “dumb day”.

  1. The beauty is that your last few days were so wonderful…that re-entry is ‘required’.
