Stop this train

Ok, so it's a John Mayer tune. But it also refers to the CRAZY WIND that's been rattling my windows and turning the dulcet tones of my windchimes into a xylophone player's arrhythmic nightmare. Yikes! I'm glad that the power's on, and am considering exactly how many layers I'll need to keep warm today.

Lots.

There's something about not sleeping well (see: CRAZY WIND) and working long days (we have a great concert scheduled tonight, but it does mean a long day. Well, except that I'll be taking a short gym break somewhere in there - that should help with the energy management, right?) that makes the day seem endless before it even begins. I get cold and tired and cranky just thinking about it. I'm not much of a church girl anymore, but I am a sucker for inspiration, and so a few months ago I signed up for the daily email from The Universe. (The universe has email! Who knew!) Here's today's email:

As if the most accomplished among you didn't have their own piercing doubts, fears, and worries; didn't have spells when they believed they were inadequate, lost, and dependent; hadn't at times felt downhearted, discouraged, and all alone in the world.

Yet still, Rahree you know their names.
It's like time and space were made for you,
    The Universe


So there it is - my personal pep talk for the day. A thought that's not all about my next cup of coffee, or how much I'm dreading taking this dog out for his walk in the - wait for it - CRAZY WIND. And, when I see these emails, I get a little perspective, and start thinking about how good things are. Like the fact that I just got approval for booking my very first chamber music season! And that I'll be trekking to Brooklyn for some girl time next weekend!

Perspective: adjusted.

Dog: still unwalked. Time to remedy that!

My five:
  1. The Antlers
  2. Gingerbread coffee.
  3. Polarfleece.
  4. Comfortable shoes
  5. Perspective.
