Working from home this morning began with an early walk in the snow. I went down to see the new ice rink by the clock tower. It was deserted and perfect and nothing beats an open air skating rink and I had somehow forgotten the magic of it.
And OF COURSE I listened to Kathleen Edwards in my head. Because I also don’t have hockey skates. youtu.be/xcjOPLQx8Bc
This is something I would never have done on a Thursday morning in the past. It was always up and a walk to the office, but never a detour on a frozen rink. I might work longer hours right now, but I think I’ve also found a better balance, and that’s something I hope stays with me long after this pandemic is all over.
