And around I go
Once off of work, I usually have a short list of errands I run on my way home. Incidental trips to the grocery store, gas station, bank, cleaners and any of the myriad of details that make up my life. Once home, I have been eating, doing some reading, watching a few movies a chapter at a time, resting and then getting to bed early. It is a simple pattern but I have to say it has its merits. The days go round and round and there are no surprises. I awake. I work. I sleep. I do it all again.
That is how I have been spending my time the last two weeks. I still think of many things. The questions I have about life are still ever present, I just do not have much time to reflect and share on them here. Even now my dinner is in the oven, I will eat and read for a while and then be in bed by eight pm to settle down and rest before rising again long before sunrise.
I am thankful for this busy time. It keeps me occupied and focused on the simple things. While my mind strays at times while driving or I get lost in thought in the few moments I find to myself, I need to be distracted from all the things that press on in the back of my mind and heart. Maybe this time, as it goes, will bring me a measure of healing and rest. I will return when I have something to say or share.
