Gift Giving

I was gifted quiet time today. I’ve written previously at my amazement with how much quiet time I need. I need to process. I need to think. I need to conjure new ideas. I need simple quiet. I need to have no interruptions. I need uninterrupted time to do all that processing.

A new person in my life thinks I helped her. Neat. I’m very glad. But, to show me how thankful she is, she has gifted me more or less 5 coffees at her coffee shop. That’s like 5 hours of uninterrupted time. That’s 5 different occasions where I can visit this neighborhood coffee shop without any tagalongs, chatting, questions, and other demands of my time. I could stretch this out over five months. One day a month, all to me.

I am excited. I am thrilled. I am thankful.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
