A meditation on my work


Let us not define our time here as negative space. Life is not the time between tacos. Life is not the time between blog posts! No, life is the time spent eating tacos, or, um, blog posts!

I am at work now.  

Am I simply awaiting the blissful time where I get to be home once again? Am I merely awaiting the sweet twinkling disappearance of the sun over Saint Minneapolis? Am I only awaiting watching a charming movie side by side with the one I love? Am I awaiting the comforts and freedom of home? The sweet spoken words of it. A glass of wine? A good book? The clarity of a day done right?


As glorious and perfect as this will all be, heaven cannot be promised, only delivered.

We must take what we have now and revel in every tiny joy in every present moment that we can!

At least, that's what I tell the library patrons when they ask me when their hold will be available.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
