A Day

i woke thinking of all the things that i had read in my work emails. every time i read them on the weekend i tell myself i won't ever do it again, and then i went and did it again! i got up, picked out my clothes, thinking and thinking all the time how was i going to fit all this in today. by the time i was making my cereal i pretty much had it sorted out, my plan. imagine my confusion when i opened the fridge door only to find the courgettes sitting there on the self. well, if i didn't eat those what did i have for dinner on sunday? i realised then that is was sunday, not monday morning.

it's an amazing feeling to be given back a day. i am not sure i had ever experienced it before. i enjoyed that sunday all the more.

today it really is the monday morning and i am thinking what's the rush. work is always going to be like that and they can wait, or plan better, for my response.

i hope you enjoy your day.

The Wind, One Brilliant Day

The wind, one brilliant day, called
to my soul with the odor of jasmine.

'In return for the odor of my jasmine,
I'd like all the odor of your roses.'

'I have no roses; all the flowers
in my garden are dead.'

'Well then, I will take the withered petals
and the yellow leaves and the waters of the fountain.'

The wind left. And I wept. And I said to myself:
'What have you done with the garden that was entrusted to you?'

THERE is a garden where lilies
And roses are side by side;
And all day between them in silence
The silken butterflies glide.

I may not enter the garden,
Though I know the road thereto;
And morn by morn to the gateway
I see the children go.

They bring back light on their faces;
But they cannot bring back to me
What the lilies say to the roses,
Or the songs of the butterflies be.

That's lovely Slightly! Thank you!

I've had that happen before too realising it's still Sunday! Wonderful feeling isn't it? Mind you I've also had it where I'm laying in bed just dozing thinking about what my day will bring when suddenly the realisation is that I should have been at work an hour ago!
