I’ll waste a lot more than a ream of cardstock to remind the people in my life that we are connected.
I’m not sure exactly how the solo day will play out nor if the people in my life will get on board, but I’ll try. I think at first I’ll be fidgety, like when I sit down to write and need fifteen minutes to settle in. But once I embrace the soloness, I expect transformative moments. Or at least, a nice break and some good rest.
Maybe a better analogy is that bucket of time spackling that I carry with me, especially when I’m sitting right here, at my computer. I see a gap or the threat of an opening, I plug the that time bugger up with time spackling and move on.
You can’t take it with you. But what if you could? What if the keeper of the gate allowed one personal carry on? What would you take with you?
