I was recently reminded of this lovely song by The Decemberists, The Engine Driver (Thanks, D)... Since then I keep going back to its calming effects.
Calm is good right now. As opposed to work, which is presently en fuego. Today I'm taking/leading my first plaintiff's deposition . So I hear, my oh-so-critical boss is going to sit in on it (the bloody hoorah!), and anyone who knows me knows that such a presence will shoot my already high anxiety straight out the G.D. roof. Oh wells. As someecards recently reminded me, "When work feels overwhelming, remember that you're going to die." Is it wrong that I find peace in that?
