A quick knock on the door.
A creak as the screen door opens.
Soft thud as a package lands on the ground.
An engine roars, forward motion, beeping reverse, driving out . . .
As I open the package, I remember the conversation from #ILA19. I begin reading. I’m finished with chapter 2 before I remember that I was making another cup of coffee.
Coffee now cold.
Plans derailed in a good way!
Time to make a decision . . . more reading? coffee? or the day’s original plan?
When have your plans been derailed?
When has a new book totally captured your interest?
How do you revise your plans? Or do you?
