Depending on my mood and the weather (I live in Chicago), I choose from one of three places to work: my front porch, my local coffee shop or at home in my office.
When the weather is nice, I get up early, get a cup of coffee and head out to my front porch. I love being surrounded by all of my plants and hearing the crickets and birds in the quiet morning hours. I savor the few minutes when a sliver of sun creeps through the buildings and onto my porch. I always pause and spend a few moments doing a meditation with the sun shining on my face.
Enjoy an Excerpt:
Colleen tossed the other pieces of mail on the kitchen island between her freshly opened can of Diet Coke and the white-lidded paper cup that had contained a large vanilla latte. She tore through the heavy cardstock. White roses swirled up each side of the invitation.
Harborview Country Club cordially invites you to attend the Forty-Fourth Annual Spring Fashion Show — featuring Raina Rose. The event will be held on Friday, the first of April at noon. RSVP by the eighteenth of March. Spots are limited!
Today was March 17. Colleen dialed the club and was put on hold. While she waited, she thought of her doctor’s appointment scheduled on Friday, April 1. She would have to reschedule. She wasn’t missing the fashion show for the second year in a row.
The club receptionist finally returned to the line. “I’m sorry. Mrs. Adler, but the event is full.”
“Were the invitations mailed late?” Colleen said.
“I sent them three weeks ago,” the woman said. “Would you like me to add you to the waiting list?”
“But I just got mine,” Colleen said. “Who’s in charge this year?” She already knew the answer to that question — her mother-in-law, Dinah, and her porcelain-faced lackeys, Ashley Barr and Victoria Heller.
The same thing had happened last year, and Colleen had given the three women the benefit of the doubt. She believed them when they blamed the post office for the delay. This year, however, Colleen knew her invitation was sent late on purpose.
