Not a lot to say really - have a rotten cold which precluded much sleep last night, and a whole host of silly little jobs to do today. But then I can begin to focus towards Easter, and that is something I am eagerly anticipating.
Talking to a few colleagues this last week we are all tired and frazzled. One was angry, one anxious, another frustrated. Some space is something we all need.
Yet, as I recall each year, for 99.9% of the world, the events we now know as Easter had no immediate impact - frazzled, furious and frustrated folk (don't try saying that if you're drink) the world over simply got on with life. Babies were born, people died, life went on. There is a sense of 'both/and' about it all - that we need space to reflect and be still, but we also need to get on with what we are doing in the here and now.
I am quite looking forward to my first cup of tea on Easter Sunday, but more I am eager that Friday's experimental offering is a positive experience. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope that Easter brings what you need - whether that is sleep, chocolate or new spirtual insights!
