I am under a lot of stress.
My daughter-in-law has stage 4 cancer.
I started a new job recently which is not going well. I lost my job…
It is cold outside.
Taking a break this morning before I tackle my day, I read a bit. Not the news as it would only add to my stress.
As my world seems to be overwhelming and falling apart simultaneously, I found this quote.
Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty. ~Daniel Burnham
I enjoyed reading about his work as an architect. I want to watch the documentary about him.
Make No Little Plans – Daniel Burnham and the American City is the first feature-length documentary film about noted architect and urban planner Daniel Hudson Burnham, produced by the Archimedia Workshop. National distribution in 2009 coincided with the centennial celebration of Daniel Burnham and Edward Bennett’s 1909 Plan of Chicago. Wikipedia
A Call Just in Time
In the middle of writing this a good friend who is wintering in Arizona called to check on me. I hesitated to take her call as my work backlog is staggering and I needed to start working.
I am so glad I did answer the phone. It was a mental health break that I sorely needed.
Talking with her, which might be seen as wasting time by some, helped me to regroup and approach today’s challenges in a calmer manner.
Now to work!
