A surprise pause in my schedule today, an unexpected change in plans, has me looking with delight towards an afternoon and evening of free time! It seems like I have been snatching a nap, an hour of canoodling, an evening to read a book, out of the miserly hands of some relentless schedule madman for months now. And that madman -- ahem, woman -- was me!
The first sensation is relief. The second, anxiety because I don't have a new book to dive into. However, I looked out the window and the day is sunny, the breezes mild, and I realized, this is an occasion. Maybe not an occasion to celebrate -- too noisy. But an occasion to notice, observe, contemplate and regenerate.
I'll be back in about....10 hours, okay?
