Drowning in business
Mid afternoon today, I was sitting in an airless conference room, irritated beyond emotional control by twisting my intellect this way and that to make sense of a deluge of acronyms and jargon. I was fast losing the power to look interested, calm or positive. I'm pretty sure I was frowning and clenching my jaw. Mentally I was screaming, gritting my teeth and making throttling gestures. At that moment, a tiny ladybird crawled across my page, onto my hand and reminded me what matters: the real world outside. I'm having a going back to teaching day.
