Saying grace.



You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
G.K. Chesterton

*************
It seems to be a season of busy work.
Prolonged moments of frustration.
Wishing for longer moments of resolution.
Longing for extended deep breaths of time to get it all done.

January has been a beast.
I hope your February (and mine) lands softly.

I love that quote, Erika! I still have books of his on my "to read" list. I'll have to crack one open one of these days. Man, I totally miss you and can not WAIT to see you hopefully soon!
