Holidays are over. Today is my first day back at work. In many ways, it’s a relief. I’ve been worrying over this event for days now and using it as my Licence to Laziness. Sleep in? Sure – why not? I’ll be back to work soon. Another day on the lounge? Why you must….you won’t be doing this come Monday. My brain waves have been tuned in to Coast FM. Cruising.
Now I’m trying to tune the radio in my head back to its regular station and I’m having a bit of trouble. Being between stations on the dial is frustrating and confusing. Ideally I strive for that crystal clear sound, where my radio station is voiced by an intelligent and insightful commentator. The No Repeat Work Day. I use the radio analogy to help me justify why I often like to be quiet and alone. I’m just trying to hear my radio program. Good conversation is a gift. Senseless prattle and brash, arrogant, over-opiniated voice hammering interferes with the radio in my head.
So in 2015 I aim to listen mainly to quality programming, to silence the static and tune in to what the universe is trying to tell me.
For what is writing if not transcribing the voice in your head?
