I struggled for quite some time with what to do for 'd.' I had several different ideas, including 'dreams' and 'discovery,' but nothing quite inspired me to write - until today.
Like everyone else I know, I feel like life is ridiculously busy; this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it just tends to get frenetic. I think this is a by-product of society and the lives we lead. It is true that we often make ourselves busy - however, I am trying to make a point in a very round-about way. People. Are. Busy. This leads me to my choice for 'd.' (Which I will get to, but also in a round-about way.)
Today, after a fairly standard day at work, I sat down and thought. I thought about the planning that I should do for next week; the marking that needs to be done; the shopping I'd like to do; how very tired I was feeling; and my various commitments and plans for the weekend. But then something happened. I stopped. I stopped and took some downtime.
