It’s summer in Oxford! The sun shone non-stop today, and obligingly warmed the earth too. It was nearly impossible to stay inside.
A wonderful way to break the cycle of the 9-5 Ferris wheel (doesn’t it sometimes feel like you spend your life going round in circles?) is to throw a wrench in your routine and watch how the water ripples outwards from the impact. Hope you like mixed metaphors. This is what I’m thinking: take your lunch break an hour later and see who you end up eating with for a change. Or maybe try a new way of prioritizing your email inbox. Randomly decide to get in touch with the 27th contact in your phone address book. Take advantage of a sunny day and walk to church.
What I notice when a change in circumstance forces me to look around instead of at my feet always astounds me.
Life looks better with eyes open.
Ready for Monday?
