What was left behind

 Too much work

Alyson Stanfield asks today what we would
leave behind or shred from the past year.  Here's
an image that makes me laugh, even though I
will no doubt see a similar sight again.  It's
my bed where I retreat to mark papers, and there
they are piled all around me.  I can leave that
image behind, or share it with you here -- because
it is funny, and in high contrast to my bed now --
a novel, a cup of chamomile tea -- pure pleasure.

Have an appreciating-what-you-do-day.
