How dare they!
Yesterday some friends left me waiting for them for half an hour.
We were meeting for an early dinner and so I scrambled to leave the studio a little early, didn’t quite finish a thought or two, got myself to where I was going and then no one showed up.
On the way they kind of let me know they were running late, so I knew when I got there that I was now unnecessarily early.
I have to confess that I was a bit grumpy. It was a pressure filled day in a pretty busy week. Don’t they know I have things to do?
So I sat there for a minute or so wallowing in this. Then I realised something.
I had nothing to do.
The weather was absolutely perfect.
And I had nothing to do.
No meeting. No thing that had to be delivered. Nothing.
This half hour window was a blessing. A gift.
I lay on my back and looked up at the blue sky and day dreamed like a child.
By the time my friends turned up I was so grateful that they had given me this gift of time.
