I saw this gorgeous little guy outside the market and something about him resonated with me. His focus. His determined not to miss his person when they emerge.
He gave me an almost imperceptible tail twitch, his snout and ears turned ever so slightly in my direction. It was like he wanted to be side tracked by the offer of a scratch, but he needed to maintain his focus.
That’s how I feel. People continue to say to me that I should enjoy the time off except that anyone who has been unexpectedly unemployed will tell you that is impossible. It doesn’t feel like time off. It feels like a waiting game. Or rather a waiting time bomb – tick tick tocking very loudly in your ears, so as to be all you can hear.
Scratchies would be nice. But I can’t lose focus. Not for one moment.
