Savoring the days of il dolce far niente - the sweetness of doing nothing. Like all good things, this too will be over soon.
Back to the grind I will go. Sigh. Not really looking forward to rush hour traffic. The getting up before the sun does. The wardrobe decisions. The deadlines. The expectations. The office politics. The crush of tired bodies on the way home. The paycheck that comes and then goes.
My oh my. When did the world of work become so dreary and dreadful?
But. As the eternal optimist, I strive to accentuate the positive.
Back to the grind I will go. Looking forward to the new connections. The stretching of the mind and spirit. The wardrobe decisions. The chance to do what I am good at. The creative process. The regular income. The sigh of relief at the end of another productive day.
We see the world not as it is, but as we are.
