I dropped the phone back on the cradle, punched hold and gently massaged my left ear. My shoulder was aching from propping the phone against my head, my finger hurt from the pressure of the pencil. It would be easy to complain about the people on the phone. Complain that work is starting up again. I won’t complain. Work is life. If I dig deep enough I can find satisfaction in the shoulder ache and the sore ear and the confused phone calls. The working portion of life’s tapestry is not always exciting but it is substantial.
