This evening a friend dropped by and we shared some tea & scones after dinner. It wasn't until about after an hour of chatting that I realized that I've been so crazy-intensely busy lately that the luxury of having a friend over for a cup of tea simply hasn't been on my agenda. It's no wonder, perhaps, that I've been waking up in the morning with a tight jaw, after I've been dreaming about lists of "To-Do" all night.
So I'm trying to reincorporate some space for peace and relaxation. Adding meditation. Walks. Sitting time in the garden. It won't be easy with the schedule that I've got over the next few weeks, but I know I need to keep the balance in my life. (poetry, I hear you calling my name....)
