Caucus Race

Monday was a bit busier than I was anticipating. I suppose that is how Mondays act sometimes. They sneak up on you. The weekend dies down and you drop your guard. Meanwhile, over there prepping for action, is Monday. Then - - BAM! Monday attacks!

Making up for any lounging over over the weekend, Monday comes in and reminds you that life is not all lavender tea, toast, and marmalade. Sometimes you have to go through the tedious or mindful tasks that pile high before you can take a moment. And that's life.

Rest? Nope - not on Monday. It's a day to jump into the caucus race, not steer away from it. And as the waves crash down and you run around to find dry land and gather around the fire, you get no drier, but stay wet all the while, because here comes another wave....But you keep running. Keep going.

Is anyone catching my Alice's Adventures in Wonderland reference?

"What I was going to say," said the Dodo in an offended tone, "was, that the best thing to get us all dry would be a Caucus race."

"What is a Caucus race?" said Alice....

First it marked out a race-course, in a sort of circle, (the exact shape doesn't matter) and then all the party were placed along the course here and there. There was no "one, two, three, and away!", but they began running when they liked, and left off when they liked, so that it was not easy to know when the race was over. (pg. 22) 

Monday we jump into the caucus race. As long as we can laugh at ourselves we will be just fine. Don't forget to leave off the race after a while. Hopefully you have some comfortable shoes on to run through the race this week!
