Honeysuckle at Work
I almost forgot it when I arrived at the office. The stem had gotten wedged in a nether region of my bag, the newspaper and file folders of papers almost burying it.
But it revived when I stuck it in some water, and I stationed it as close to my nose as possible.
All day long the honeysuckle brought the outside in. I would catch a whiff of it when I was on the phone or sending an email, when I was reviewing notes for an article I'm about to write. And every time I would feel my shoulders drop a little in response.
It was a busy day, trying in some ways. The scent of honeysuckle helped me through it.
