Perspective

A little perspective is important when I deal with intellectual work like publishing.

The need is greater when the stress and the feelings are high--feelings that things are going in the wrong directions. I should make time every day to go for a walk.

At the least, I should let my soul fly out the window.

What good advice you have Liz.

Whenever I've done that, I find it calms me down and I can see with greater vision. My only trouble is that I usually don't remember to release my soul until it's long overdue. Sometimes it has to break loose on it's own. :)

I read you comment and I think "runaway soul." I'm glad your sould has the sense to break and find what it needs. I wish mine did. :)

My soul is forbidden to fly anywhere after it called me up to bail it out of the county lock up a few months back. I agree in walking though, except when it starts to get too cold. Then I drive to get perspective.

Janus,
You keep a practical eye on that soul of yours. I know it has the capacity for trouble and I don't want to be bailing you out of jail with it. :)
