Snowbound — a chance to think
It’s about 4 inches of gently falling snow outside right now. I love it. Meetings have already canceled for the next day. If I stay home tomorrow and do nothing but phone calls and paperwork, it will be great! Why? I don’t have any great novels to read or things to buy on-line (okay, I *do* want an e-reader), my flute is in the shop, and my husband will be on his laptop. My real happiness for the day will be having hours in a row to think, really think, about all those topics I’ve saved in hopes of just such a snow-bound day. I want to think of how to verify and write up a new coaching approach. I want to figure out how to connect with the ever more difficult people in my life. I want to think of a plan about how to be a consistently good friend, even as my availability for friends diminishes. I want to make a difference in the world. One snowy day is my road into thinking my way into being the best. I can’t wait. I even have the perfect notebook for taking “thinking notes.” Dogs and cat at my feet, a cup of coffee in hand, and oh, a silenced Blackberry. THAT will make this thinking day REALLY work.
