I haven’t seen much daylight for the past two and a half months.

I get up before the sun rises and come home way after the sun sets.

I’ve barricaded myself midst four white walls–no windows (except for the satirical photo of the sunset someone had posted on the wall in front of me)–my eyes glued to the computer screen for more than 10 hours a day.

This new lifestyle is called work. Workaholic? Burnt out work? Feel-like-burnt-toast-right-now work?

You may think I dread work but for the first time, I’m actually enjoy what I do.

At the same time, today was the first time in a while I’ve had the opportunity to stay home and rest.

I went out to look at our garden, and suddenly realized what I’ve missed.

Somewhere along the way, I’ve forgotten to look beyond the four white walls. Life is about balance. Where have I been?
