Not Today

 

Definitely not today

I am not in the mood

not in the mood for

 

honesty

healthy food

advice

interdependence

relationships

reality

meeting expectations

 

today

I am off the grid

out of the system

1 in 365

a systems thinkers holiday

(hope) no one will notice

(disapprove of) my absence

 

too late now

already confirmed with a 

glass of wine at lunch

and a lustful yearning 

for a one hour nap

(my only goal for the day)

 

today

is not about renewal

no, no, that would be too planful

today is about recovery

recovery from the systems

that we work in

live in

be in

 

systems that deplete

and deplore our humanness

our humanity

in the name of

whatever

 

we can only change the system

from inside the system

and today I am off the grid

outside the system

on holiday

 

Iíll be back tomorrow

(promise)
