Does anyone besides me remember that old Simon and Garfunkle tune, 59th Street Bridge Song? "Slow down, you move too fast," the lyrics remind us, "You've got to make the morning last, just kickin' down the cobblestones. Lookin' for fun and feelin' groovy."
My classes are done for the semester... essays submitted, exams taken. After a pause for a deep breath, I still have plenty to do. I have already enjoyed picking up a non-text book, the memoir A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas, for the first time in months. I had to substitute at the school yesterday, my first day after exams, so today feels like my first day of the holiday break. I am volunteering at the school for an hour, later this morning, but after that I have a little time for the library, a little cleaning and laundry at home, and maybe another chapter or two in that book.
Tuesday morning at the bus stop, five-year old Tanka asked me, "How many days until the future?" Really... what could I tell him? I keep wondering that myself! *grin*
Despite the snow, I'm feelin' groovy. Where-ever you are, whatever the weather, I hope you're feelin' groovy too.
