I'm on "stay-cation" this week, and so am trying to change my habits just a little to make the usual seem new and different. This morning I got up at 5AM and walked exactly 3.4 mles to a breakfast meeting (OK, I'm not entirely faux-away, but enough to tell the difference). It felt great, a reminder that leaving my comfort zone can be (almost) as rewarding as staying in bed an extra hour.
As I stumbled out of the apartment in near darkness, I passed and read the calligraphy print by the door just as I do every day:
"Nothing endures but change." --Epictetus
