Time's up.

I'm supposed to go back out to work today - am allowed three days of bereavement leave and my days are now up. I'm not sure who came up with this number but it's not limited to Trinidad and Tobago. Is three days supposed to be enough time to get out of mourning and into work mode? Flip a mental switch and one's mind is supposed to switch streams from funeral planning/ organising/  saying goodbye to one's relative to meetings/ report writing/ work work work. 

I find that somewhat amazing. 

I feel tired... have not yet caught up on rest. There's still a lot going on... we're having mini-satsangs each night until next Monday when another part of the funeral rites will take place. 

Three days of leave don't quite allow for anything besides the actual funeral. I'm contemplating  taking a major amount of time off - no pay? sick leave? I'm not sure yet but I do know that I need time. 

Am in the process of figuring it all out.

It would be great to have some downtime if not with pay at least through a leave of absence without pay... gives you time to write and reflect on next steps and to recreate yourself in alignment with the purpose for which you were born..
