Writing in the margins

I read a post by Kristi Holl today called "Overloaded Lives," and it reminded me of a comment by a friend. She said that when she had free time, she liked to just sit and think or dream. She almost seemed embarrassed to admit it. How sad that time to dream has been spurned to such an extent that it's something no one has time for.

Kristi went on further to talk about the importance of keeping our lives from getting away from us—to make sure that we preserve our margins. The margin is where we can dream.

This week, check out your own life. Do you have any margins? Have you overloaded your own life to such an extent that you no longer have quiet places to sit and dream?
