Diversion Through The Zoo

This week has been like a trip to the zoo
with a four-year-old leading the way:

"Giraffe!
. . . Monkeys!
. . . . . . Elephant!
. . . Pandas!
Camel!
Lions!
Hippos! . . .
Monkeys!
. . . Flamingos!
. . . OTTERS! . . .
. . . Hey look, monkeys!!!"

"Snow!
Reschedule!
. . . . . . Email!
Snow!
ICE!!! . . . . . .
. . . Focus!
Write!
Plan!
. . . Hey look, snow!
Reschedule! . . .
Focus! . . .
Work!
Email!
. . . . . . Read!
. . . SNOW!"

...and I stagger into the week's end

unsure of whether to pray for forgiveness
for my distracted meandering,
or grace to accept this unexpected tour through the zoo
and even a little humor for having taken the journey.
