365 Letters to Myself
May 6th - Chit Chat...
The down time while working can be an energy drainer. You start the shift, ready to go. You work diligently on the set-up and then HALT. You have run out of things to do.
Too early to do the next thing. This time, too much time to kill. So let the chit chat begin. We are all familiar with each other but not exactly know each other. Everyone is definitely nice, cordial and respectful. You can get into a variety of interesting conversations, staying away from anything potentially controversial (or telling).
This time, I was surprised. Given the craziness of some stuff going on, the boundaries were stretched a bit. We talked about layoffs at someone’s ‘real’ job. We exchanged disbelief at what is going on at the state capital legislative session. We slowed down and got back to the safer schooling almost finished.
How nice to use the time gap for some chit chat that was insightful. Break over, all full steam ahead here out.
Hmmm, memorable conversation…day 276!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
