5 December 2013
I’m at my desk making a Christmas mix for my father so he can play it in the car. I am also sorting his to-mail into two stacks: the red card that goes into the green envelope on the right, and the brown card that goes in the red envelope on the left.
I really, really wish that I wasn’t here. I don’t know if it’s the songs that are making me feel this way, but I am suddenly feeling very sad because I can’t be with friends who live in other countries.
I wish I was at your place. I wish we could have coffee or tea, and walk through the streets, and talk. Just talk.
Dammit these feelings.
It is Day Five of the #GraceAndGratitude workshop, and Sarah has just sent two of my favourite poems. Things I have nourished myself with today, even before I read today’s notebook:
- Soup, because I wasn’t feeling very well
- Coffee, cheesecake, and another Snickers bar (seems I’ve been doing that a lot lately)
- Christmas songs
- A nice afternoon nap
I am almost done with work-related tasks and other backlog to-do’s. I think, once I’ve done those that I will just rest for the remaining days of the year. I am looking forward to spending more time reading and writing letters, as well as savouring more books and poems.
I want to work on my poems, too.
