When I arrived at work this morning I was stressed. So much to do that I had leftovers from last week. I was worried about adding the usual stack of tasks that come in by phone on Mondays.
But when my boss arrived, he asked if we should close for Martin Luther King Day. I said, “Yes!” but I had too much to do to go home. So we locked the door and set the phones on afterhours, and I skated through the day. It was so freeing to work on things at my own pace without interruption and only talk when I chose to call out. I got so much done! It was wonderful to be skating.
It reminded me of this duck photo I took a few weeks ago. I thought this image came out really well with a watercolor treatment too. Which one do you like better?
