Say No to Poetry!
I said ‘NO!’ to keeping up with that project of writing a poem a day, but not on purpose. It’s funny how a day job can drag you away from doing things like writing poems, exercising, breathing deeply. Or is that just me?
The one thing my job has taught me is that just because something has an urgent deadline, doesn’t necessarily make it important in your life (or the world itself.) It’s possible to get something done on time and still take care of mind and body stuff that will matter for the rest of your life. It just takes a smidge of effort.
It may be time to take a vacation day or two.
