Don't Refill the Mustard

“We can't enchant the world, which makes its own magic;
but we can enchant ourselves by paying deep attention”
Diane Ackerman

Forget to vaccuum.

Don't replenish the mustard.

RSVP "no" to your cousin's wedding in Nebraska.

Look up from your Blackberry.

Get your head out of the inventory management software.

Toss the asset ratios.

Misfile the insurance claims.

Take those hands off the keyboard.

Take a deep breath.

Order take-out Chinese for dinner.

Watch Casablanca.

Or I Love Lucy.

Dip your fingers in paint.

Collect little twigs and dried petals.

Don't forget.
