Among the many pearls of wisdom – and there are many – one can find in Christianity’s Holy Book, the idea that a periodic day of rest is important, even if you’re omnipotent, is right up there with Do Unto Others. So it is that today was a fairly light day for me. It wasn’t completely without action: I went to the store, did some laundry, made some guac. But I only walked, perhaps, a mile, and I didn’t really do anything student related for the first time in a long time. I did have an actual, honest to god, meeting with a colleague over Skype which was, itself, seeming to take a day of rest.
But the big news, the thing that really capped off what a tremendously fine day it was and prompted this post is that I figured out how to arrange the various audio-visual tools of the apartment so that I could simultaneously eat dinner at a table, look at the Andes and watch the Big Dance.
Now that’s living.
Back to the grind tomorrow.
