I moved my desk around recently.  I have been trying to downsize and simplify but once I turned it in this direction, I realized this move helped me prepare for my day.  I now start my mornings sipping my coffee, doing a bit of writing, and watching  out the window.  The last few mornings have helped me change my perspective.  I look out on the yard and the small creatures who graze there in the morning sun and I find my breathing slow down, my perspective on the busyness of the day shifting from anxious to manageable.  I am beginning to believe there is hope for spring and summer after all.
