I woke up this morning to the sound of my former
boss's wife telling me that the school was closed and
my part time classes canceled for the day. Go back
to sleep she said. I obliged. As much as I don't like
coping with snow, I think there are few things more
pleasant than sleeping under a warm duvet in a cool
room while snow falls softly muffling the noises of
the city. Plus so many people stayed off the roads today
that it was much quieter than it might have been.
I reveled in something I haven't had any of for months it
seems - time. What a total pleasure.
Have an enjoying-the-unexpected-gift-of-time day.
