I have 25 unread emails in my inbox right now.
That little red light on my phone is blinking (meaning I have voicemails).
Since it’s testing season, this week kicks off massive school-wide tutorials before and after school and occasionally on Saturdays.
I was out on Friday and my bookshelf area now looks like a war zone.
I have four mandatory meetings this week that require so much time and preparation that I’m considering walking in to each one of them dressed like Princess Leia so that I can be dismissed immediately for insanity. (30 Rock, anyone?)
But I have this written out on my desk by my computer:
“It comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists in simply shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day. Standing back from all your natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind.” –C.S. Lewis
Let’s come in out of the wind this Monday.
