Cleaning 10:10 AM


Prairie Home Companion plays on the radio as I sit in my office. I have taken the time, on the misty and gray day, to come in and attempt to clean. Craving the quiet of the office, the solitude, and the mindless pleasure that comes from sorting, straightening, and cleaning.

Just me and the radio on this gray afternoon.

But it isn’t just me and the radio. For whatever reason, there are more people in the office today than there were Friday afternoon.

I have a feeling that I will pack my bags and leave sooner than anticipated. The cleaning can wait for a quiet day and an empty floor.
