Some mornings the only cure for a busy, overwhelmed head is a cup of black coffee and some fresh air. Yesterday was such a day. I didn’t get out of the wrong side of the bed exactly, two very entitled dogs make that an impossibility, but my head was unproductively busy. Later in the day a friend described such thoughts as ” Like a murmuration of Starlings or a shoal of fish turning in the sea.”
As I had predicted the coffee, some conversations with neighbours and a small pastry set me right.
An in- person meeting with a colleague provided more mind nurturing in the form of freshly picked mint tea and a take away bunch of mint to grow my own.
And actually who wouldn’t be smoothed out by such a gorgeous napkin!
Things were all falling into place quite nicely. Hugo had even taken on the role of P A for a while to keep me on schedule.
Although there were times when he was definitely blocking productivity.
With or, probably without, Hugo’s assistance all the jobs got done and some order returned to my mind. But I am left with the lovely images of thoughts being like murmurations of Starlings.
Or shoals of fish.
Two lovely videos to start a chilled out Saturday with.
