So, I’m working from home and I’m being pretty productive, I might add. BUT I’ve gotten into the bad habit of keeping the TV on in the background. This is odd behavior for me. I don’t watch television and because I don’t watch it, I only get local channels. So, I’m pretty much stuck with the local NBC affiliate because it comes in the clearest.
I was up at 4:00 today. I turned on the news at 4:30 and it went on and on until the end of the Today Show at 11. This is not good for me. Nope. Not good.
So I turned it off and worked in my normal silence for the remainder of the workday. Much nicer.
At 4, I had an online poetry workshop. Oh, how it did my evil heart good. We concentrated on the concept of home and identified a specific room in a specific place and went through the five senses of being in that room. I have six pages of notes for a prose poem about my dining room. I can’t wait to dig into it a little later tonight.
Right now, I have the news on. I thought it important to tune into the national news. It’s depressing. Now I’m going to turn it off and do something creative.
Be good to yourself.
