Jed Bartlet was having a rough day on The West Wing. (It had something to do with the TV Republicans!)
Leo, his Chief of Staff, asked the President how he was doing.
Bartlet: Vexed, riled, irked… Ticked, honked, pissed.
I was right beside him!
Yes, the news was enough. The garden guy’s helper cutting the tv/internet cable sealed the deal!
Thirty hours later, we’re back in business. (Not that anybody was counting!)
Along the way, I noticed a couple of cool things…
I lived without MSNBC. Possibly, with better blood pressure!
I got all my prep work for Filters videos done even though our tech challenges were messing with my calendar! (And they’re going to be even better because I did a bit more noticing of my own limiting beliefs!!!)
I also noticed some interesting internal reactions while I was sorting the calendar elves… like things I was sad to change and things I wasn’t!
All of that happened yesterday, when I had no idea when the world as I’ve come to depend on it would be working again. And, then, today arrived. And I did a really unusual thing.
I declared today PAINT DAY!
The whole day! (Okay… time out for telling you about it!)
You see, not only did I have several #wip’s looking for attention, I needed dot time. Here’s a small glimpse of what happened:
You, wise reader, may be wondering what the prayers were behind all those dots!
And, yes… there’s an answer.
Just like the frog at the top! (Thanks, Pete!)
You see, I’ve been busy noticing and wondering. And it’s time to make some choices based on what I’ve learned. Time, in many ways, to act on my deepest hopes.
It’s a bit early for details just yet. There are other dreams and calendars and challenges involved.
I feel really good, though, about listening to my dreams.
And, admittedly, a bit anxious. Dreams bring changes. Risks, even. And, quite probably the need to learn more new things.
The fact that I love learning doesn’t mean it isn’t scary, sometimes!
So… more dots. Dots which will be, before long, the petals of Oakleaf Hydrangeas, with thanks that we have a home and hope for those who are longing for home.
And some more, still, for a deeply courageous woman named Jen who told her tragic healthcare story on MSNBC tonight. May we have ears to hear!
