I listened politely to Paul, all the while thinking, “remember the coffee, did I turn off the eggs, looks like I need more cookies for the guests, what it that stain on the carpet, am I ever going to turn over 3 rooms by the end of the day, remember to put marshmallows on the grocery list” and then, I’m ashamed to say I told him all I know, which is very little, about Inukshuks. I am ashamed of myself. I have a master’s in psychology and I am trained to listen. My world was filled with a whirlwind of thoughts around maintaining organization in a busy season and I could no longer be in the present. I had become too overwhelmed to listen and with much regret, useless words spewed out of my mouth. My only excuse is that I was about to take a day off after 50 days of work and I had lost my balance. My universe was in a turmoil.
