Anchoring our week

Having Sunday afternoon in front of us gives all kinds of promise for truly enjoying a relaxed afternoon and evening, attending an anticipated class with friends, a ballgame, or maybe binge watching your favorite episodes of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.    Today’s blog post on is in praise of taking a few minutes to get ready for the week ahead for each of us, I call it ‘Anchoring our week’.

It is worth nothing today is Henry David Thoreau’s birthday and I immediately thought of his famous work “Walden” with him going out to the woods to simplify his life.  “The Project Gutenberg EBook of Walden, and On The Duty Of Civil Disobedience, by Henry David Thoreau” is available at this link.  His works achieved over 20 volumes and it is important to note this from wiki about him: “Thoreau’s philosophy of civil disobedience later influenced the political thoughts and actions of such notable figures as Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr.”

It is hard to believe seven years already and the early arrival of greetings for him have been most appreciated  – each inspected and dog sniffed approved.  He will be writing about it later this month so stay tuned for that blog post!

Here’s to making the most of the day ahead and you know I’m going to say it, see if you can’t squeeze in writing one letter today and make someone’s week when they hear from you!
