I've been away. My tank read empty on ideas, on creativity, on energy to do little else than putter around the house slowly, methodically, doing practical and necessary things.
I let myself be. I let that tired tide pull me out to sea where I could float for a while without having to worry about where I would end up. I always seem to come back to shore in a few days.
And as I sat at my desk today, still and quiet, I realized something. I looked at all the things piled up, waiting for my attention, and then a little fluttering caught my eye. I glanced up through the blinds to see something beautiful I would have missed had I not shifted my focus, changed my perspective. So I lifted the blinds. Sometimes it's as easy as that.
