After a really stressful morning of work (and a pretty meager lunch), I decided I deserved a short walk to quiet my mind and get rid of some of the stress. I was sure a dose of Vitamin D via the sun and some fresh air would really help.
You see, my brain doesn't get quiet very often. I've always got multiple to-do lists swimming around in there as well as detailed thoughts about the more important topics. My work has really, really picked up (which explains my lack of blogging) with a very large project going live one week from tomorrow. I'm finalizing testing, taking screenshots, and preparing training materials and records. I get overwhelmed very easily and find myself needing a break from the sheer noise of it all. Thus, the walk.
I stepped out the door and was greeted by more noise than I was experiencing inside my office. There was a loud roar overhead and when I looked up, I saw the Goodyear Blimp. Once I started to block that noise out, I heard the passing cars, then people on cell phones, then jack hammers in the construction zones, and then those damned cicadas. A quiet walk? I wish. It still helped me relax a bit and the sun was refreshing, but it definitely wasn't any quieter than my mind!
