Composure and Reflection

This would have been a better photograph had I taken a moment to check my composition and made sure I had the handle to the coffee cup in the picture. And I did not notice until after I uploaded it the reflection of the trees and my hand. I was waiting in line at Starbucks and did not want to slow things down by trying to get a better shot.

Still, it made me stop and think about the need to maintain my own composure, and the to always consider what I am reflecting as I go about my business in the world.

I left work today at 4:30 and I don't have to go back until Monday morning after Easter. I'm not quite sure what all I will do with my time, but I am sure at least a portion of it will be spent reflecting on Easter and what it means to me.

I may be back between now and then, but if I am not, have a blessed Easter. And for heaven's sake, if you are lucky enough to get one, don't eat all of your chocolate Easter bunny at one sitting. The bunny will revolt and it won't be a pleasant experience. Don't ask me how I know. :)


  1. I tend to just drift off into my reflecting. All the time any more. Was over at "Metanoia" (not sure if you read her or not) and she asked "Is Easter possible?" and the question has continued to occupy my mind since. May you, my friend, enjoy all that the event celebrates. No chocolate bunnies, no jelly beans for me. I've dropped 30 pounds in the last few months and intend to stay here....

  2. I am catching up on my blog-reading, after working two jobs during tax season.

    What a beautiful concept you share here! Indeed, you've given me food for thought! What DO I reflect by my hasty words and actions?

    Thank you for posting! :~)


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
