Rich, dark, velvety coffee caressed my taste buds and some how that made up for all the horrible grime of the day. I’m a fairly easy to please kind if girl, good quality coffee,some of my own space, some good conversation and great intellectual debate are pretty much what makes me happy.
Any one of these are enough to distract my mind from a bad day or such. A combination of these items and you found the key! :)
Because the day had been so much less than stellar already and the coffee so very good I wasn’t really paying attention to her words. It was a bit like a Charlie Brown cartoon, where none of the students understand the teacher because her voice is really just a background noise, with not distinguishable sounds. For all I know she may be talking about how she found the cure for cancer of the answer to bringing about world peace. Then again she could have been talking about how to breathe air. Although I doubt it!
Let’s face it, work meetings are rarely riveting, a lot of times they are boring. Work meetings serve a purpose, help to bring the team together and blah blah. But the magic for me, is how a work meeting will automatically shift my mind elsewhere, letting me wander and daydream a bit.
I don’t actually mind that I can get caught up and caught in an escape from stuff. We all so it because it’s part of bring human and because a break from the realities of life is needed now and then. I just wish I wouldn’t find myself doing that during meetings at work or such.
I’m not sure what that says about me or work type meetings, but there you have it. At the best of times I’m only partially there, sometimes I’m more there than others, but I’m never 100% there so don’t except to see me 110% present for these things.
Beloved is amazed by this habit of mine, when I really need to focus and be present, part of me just gets lost in other things. I marvel at how he doesn’t do this. The man is there at work meetings, is fully present and aware. He knows exactly what’s being said and further more who said what. No vagueness on his part.
Still I can’t help but point out that he managed to get stuck with stuff he doesn’t want. Not any less or any more than what I get stuck with by the way.
So I think I will just continue to allow myself to drift slightly during the boring meetings and such. After all we all need breaks and dreams!
