Distraction: the divided attention of an individual (Mary) from the chosen object (writing) of attention onto the source of distraction.
Today was certainly one of those days…
I should blame it on the early sunrise, which presented me with a dragon streaking across the sky. This is how my day started and from this point, I was gone.
There is another cause for the myriad of distractions — the spring-like weather. As most of you know, I’m a autumn/winter gal. However, in California, we are breaking records with high temps.
Today is 70!
I saw buds on trees where the autumn leaves have yet to leave the branches. Birds are playing in the birdbath, and hummingbirds dart by my window every hour.
They’re confused and I’m confused.
My lemons are flourishing — even with lows in the 30’s.
Trust me, I’m not complaining.
I’m a disciplined person, but the past few days have me planning out my garden. I should not be doing any of this until March, not January. But the outside beckons, luring me to play.
Today was one of those days where I ditched the writing, if only for a few hours, and took a very long walk…
Nature is my distraction. What’s yours?
