I have worked 5 of the last 21 calendar days. I need to get back in the rhythm.
It sounds so trite, and yet it’s true.
Haven’t you heard about football players coming off their bye week, or other athletes who need to reestablish their rhythm?
I’m no athlete – obvi. However, I do work with the weather which is incredibly rhythmic.
“Weather patterns are changing.” You’ve heard those words before.
It’s not that they sometimes change. They’re always evolving to something they aren’t. Luckily, there is fluidity to the motion of the atmosphere.
If the pattern was a simple sine wave, getting back in sync would be easy. The atmosphere has lots of patterns, large and small, important and unimportant, constantly interacting. Getting in the rhythm means getting with that flow, which you often feel more than understand.
Today, I’ll look at my maps and understand them, but it will probably take a little time before I see them and am viscerally able to “go with the flow.”
Luckily the patterns aren’t too complicated right now… and for us, virtually snow free.
