Well, tonight I was going to tell you a story about something that has brought much amusement to our house since mid afternoon. However, my email is failing me, and without the pictures there is no story, so that will have to wait for another day.
So, this is an interim post to catch up, as I haven't posted in over a week. This last week has been a tough one work wise, I've been away on a course which I think was supposed to inspire, but instead has left me feeling flat, and not quite sure what to do next.
We spend so much of our time in work, it can absorb our piece of the world, it can become defining, driving everything.
Today, I woke up and the sun was shining, the rain had finally stopped. In the sunlight today there has been opportunity to enjoy other's company, to drive in shades, to plant sunny geraniums, and to smile.
These are things that have made my day, warmth, light, laughter.

Whilst away I read this:

There's an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:

A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.

This is a great poem- and I love it because it reminds me that there is a right time for everything, and thats what are days are for, work is just a small part of that. It doesn't define us,  or make us the person we are. Days are about learning what the right time for everything is and relaxing into that, so we can be the best we can be.
To-day was about restoration.

Tomorrows post will have pictures.
