Peace, the Surge of Living

Quote

“The days related to the nights, and the seasons to the years.  There were no futures.  Love had something to do with tomorrow, not with yesterday—and it occurred to him that peace was not a placid, inert thing; it was the steady throb in the bloodstream, the surge of living.”

House begs, “spring cleaning”…hands over ears, I’m hiding…

All the books in stacks, on shelves, yet to be read

Unresolved issues…thoughts, memories plaguing mind…

Shopping list to make, groceries needed, must venture out Friday

T

Time to tweeze, take recycling downstairs…tempted to choose ‘day off’…

Inspiration, so many writing prompts…maybe I should work on unfinished novel?

Only 24-hours in day, despite my habit of omitting sleep…

Nobody can keep up this pace, I’m no machine…I’m retired!
