Trying to stay in the calm
amidst the chaos; one final hurdle, deadline looms, short-staffed, technical issues, transition a rocky road, like a large  conglomerate  rock thrown together clumsily, rough. 

Outside, a little sparrow flits to a nearby tree, sun on my face. I slow my walk, I feel anxiety, acknowledge it and breathe in deeply as I walk to lunch–
a much needed break in the day.
