Yesterday I wrote a bleak essay about losing the luxury of time ... about exchanging it for something of lesser value. I decided not to post it and made up my mind to simply enjoy my weekend of freedom from teaching. I love teaching ... the people ... the intellectual excitement it generates ... but I have been missing my long days and the peace that comes from being on top of things in my life.
So ... here is my Saturday recollected ... plus a photo of me taken on the first day of teaching last week ...
.. . the view as evening sets in ...
.... the satisfaction of a table finally cleared of hours of work
... a glass of wine to celebrate
... a bed made up fresh with air dried linens waiting for me
... a new bathing suit after being christened in a kayak and in the waters of the lake with Kenya by my side
... a tub filling for a relaxing bath
It has been a good day ... hope yours was too. And just think ... there is still one more weekend day left before life begins to spin by again, and the luxury of time disappears.
