Hello Monday. This is the view from my office window, just to the left of where I am sitting. I am fortunate to love my office, a tiny old house in the "city" next to the town in which I live. My husband and I own it, which certainly contributes to my affection. So, even though I dream of travel, and will travel, and seek to understand better, things both within us and larger than us: creativity; spirituality; beauty, at least I get to love where I am for now. That's a good place to start. This is the cat, looking out above window as she sits on my desk in front of my computer and on my papers. Our cats live and have refuge at the office because the three dogs at home would terrorize them if they lived there. The above cat, Chloe, I brought here from the SPCA to keep the other cat company - but it turns out that the only interest Chloe has in the first cat is to stalk her tirelessly. Now first cat spends her time hiding in the cupboards. So much for well intentioned plans.... ...which is my thought for today. What is the better choice for carrying out one's life to the fullest: to make specific, identified goals in order to self direct - to Plan; or to let opportunity, serendipity and openness discover paths one might not have otherwise followed?
