I start most mornings sipping coffee in bed with little light for nearly an hour. I began this practice when I was a single parent of 3 adolescents. It continues to serve me well, although I periodically think I should wean myself off of this luxury of time.
Last Wednesday I had a very busy day planned, including an early departure. I was tempted to not sit down with mug in hand. As I poured that first cup, I knew I needed to pause.
I let go of the “to do” list for 15 minutes. Cleared it away with quiet and coffee. I savored the aroma, the familiar plain white mug. Without effort, two design solutions formed up.
Do you practice quiet?
