Writing on an Off Day

I am having a bit of an off day.  I know I should have accepted a substitute position today, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.  My mind is throbbing with anxiety and fear.  I waited all morning for a call about a loved one’s surgery.  Finally I got it and felt relieved.  Now, I am without a schedule and wish nothing more than to be at work rightnow.  Instead, I am at my coffee shop–working on this and that.

Luckily, the knowledge that the rest of my week is scheduled puts me at some ease that today is open.  I spent my morning updating this and that.  I read a bit as well.  With all these petty assignments down, I can focus on the main attraction.  I need to pound out at least 1,000 words on my novel.  I guess I might as well get started.  Here is a poem for all my readers.

At the Base of the Waterfall
One of my favorite hikes is to a place called Horsetooth Falls.  The trail winds through a few valleys and ends in this beautiful little pond.  I rested at the waterfall for a while during my most recent hike and wrote this.  I am practicing being concise and reading my work out-loud.  I hope it works.
