On Friday, as I prepared for shut-down day, the concept of a computer-free day filled me with apprehension and I wondered if I would suffer withdrawal symptoms. It turned out to be a wonderful, almost liberating, thing to do and so I decided to extend it a little bit. The fact that spring has arrived with a bang has definitely spurred me on, and acted as an incentive to keep me from sitting inside.
Coming back from this little hiatus feels almost like starting afresh, which is why I thought it was appropriate to post this photo (which has been photoshopped) of a very young wasp. And I would like the child I was then to act as a reminder to live in the moment, to be mindful, and to have an open mind - a beginner's mind.
