Stepping back from my job is getting more interesting every day. Been noticing things that swooped right by me. How many things have I missed while on auto pilot. Saw a beautiful sunrise driving to work this morning. Yesterday I just muttered and pushed the visor over to block the sun. The coffee that Mr. Husband made tasted extra good. I didn’t care if it happened to dribble down my front.
There is a small herd of long horns in the field next to the campus where I work. Need to get a picture of the guys. They come out to the fence in the morning to chew grass and watch us ants scurrying to and fro.
Commented to a coworker about how beautiful the flowers were blooming around the pond. He replied “oh, I don’t have time to go out there.” Said in a tone of voice that implied he was too important for time-wasting nonsense like looking at flowers. Sad that it’s almost a status symbol to be “busy.” In this corporate reality being busy is an excuse for anything. A good reason to ignore common courtesy and being friendly with the people that we spend most of our waking hours with.
