I meant to do my work today, but…

Dreaming of working in my studio…..   I still have to do some insulating in the new barn space.  I’m excited to have the well lit, large area to work in.  Being home will be wonderful.  I’ll have to work on disciplining myself to stay focused on my work and not get distracted by what’s outside…chickens scratching in the yard, the cat roaming in and out of the studio,  the call of a bird that I need to run to identify.

It reminds me of a poem:

I meant to do my work today,
but a brown bird sang in the old oak tree,
and crows were chasing an owl in the field,
and all the leaves were calling me…
and the wind sent sighing over the land,
tossing the grasses to and fro, and
the water in the lake held out its
shining hand, so what could I do
but laugh and go?
