Mosaic Mercredi - seeing red

Do you ever have those mornings, you know the ones, you start with good intensions, of sorting out all those niggling things that you can't bear to be on your 'to do' list a second longer, only to be thwarted at every turn by some red tape or bureaucracy.

My Mosaic Mercredi is perhaps a little representative of my day.  A flash of red on a calm horizon.  But honestly, these are things beyond my control.  And so I let it be. A point of red, a little box of annoyance that I packaged up and put up on a high shelf and got on with my day.
