Furlough/ letting go

Image

This is what I see out my federal government office window. Most days I bring my lunch from home and use the window sill for a table, resting my eyes by looking at the sky while I eat.  I love this view. 

Today I ate lunch at home, though it is a Wednesday and there was much work that was supposed to be done. According to the furlough papers I received from my agency, it is a federal crime to do any of that work until the Congress cures the current “lapse in appropriations.”

What I am sitting with are the curious sensations of being so definitively not in charge.
