Sometimes, my Every Day World gets to be a little routine. Work angst. Humdrum chores. Deadlines. Trying to fit everything in.
No Big Deal, really.
Just . . . Regular Life.
But I'm really lucky . . . to have an Other World.
And for perspective.
Sure. There are lots of humdrum chores to attend to when you have a "cottage" "up north" . . .
birds that need to be chased out of your walls
that kind of thing.
But it's a different kind of humdrum. . . .
a slower pace
and spotty cell service
and, well, birds in your walls.
So . . . you just kind of . . .
forget about deadlines and gardening-at-home and your schedule next week.
An escape to the Other World . . . gives you perspective.
It helps you remember that life is more than work, and that chores can wait.
There is great power in kicking back and relaxing a little bit.
Because . . . y'know . . .
those deadlines will still be there come Monday!
