Meetings, reflexology and goodbye Sir Terry ...

A ridiculously busy day today, but here’s this morning’s meditation:

Meditation 219

For me
a city

is never
a place of refuge

but a place
of shifting shadows

and alienation.

Could work be the new city? It’s certainly a thought … a place full of alienation and shifting shadows indeed. I’m not sure I feel entirely human here. Anyway today, I’ve juggled at least a zillion meeting demands, stared blankly at hundreds of pieces of paper and wondered if I can fit a Starbucks moment into the week at all. Plus this morning we had the last of our Welcome Week planning sessions, and if it’s not done now, then I fear it may never be.

Thank goodness then for lunchtime reflexology – I desperately needed to chill. I’m also attempting to come to terms with the great and deep shock of Terry Wogan leaving the Radio Two Breakfast slot, after about 150 years at least. He always makes me feel so much more real as I drive to work, and I hate the thought that he won’t be there for long. Besides, I really can’t stand any of the Chris Evans’ shows and the thought of him replacing the great Sir Terry is making me lose the will to live entirely, sigh. I’ll have to go back to listening to Classic FM & Radio 3, depending on which tune I prefer.

This afternoon, I’ve done some more meeting flurrying around and a heck of a lot of worrying. Much like a normal day then, but so much more so. Tonight, I’ll pop in to see Gladys on my way home. And then it’s straight into the Hallsfoot’s Battle edit. One third to go …

Ooh, and there’s Mock the Week and Would I Lie To You? on TV so I’ll just have to catch those. Comedy TV makes it all worthwhile, you know.

Today’s nice things:

1. Poetry
2. Reflexology
3. Editing Hallsfoot
4. TV.

Comedy certainly does. Laughing's far better than the alternative! :)

I've always thought uni is like an every changing city. Part of it stays the same, the buildings, staff etc, then those bloddy students come and the city changes, evolves, sometimes joy, sometimes tears, sometimes hard work sometimes not..... sorry, just got my mind a drifting. Hehe good news on the blog front.
