That’s me. It’s almost 1:30 pm today–and I’ve been laying on this couch doing nothing all day! Well, if you consider yakkin’ on the phone and surfing the net nothing–which I kind of do. And guess what–this feels really good. Like, really-really-REALLY good!!
Of course–I have lots of other things I could be doing–work I should be doing to get myself caught up–ahead of the game even. But I choose not to. I choose to enjoy the way my body feels melting into the cushion. I choose to love the way Nyla is all curled up at the end of the couch. She’s perfected the act of being and has no regrets about it what-so-ever.
Listen, I’m going to tell you something. There’s only 18 more days of school left till summer break! 18 more days left of this life–and then I turn the page–start a new chapter–begin a new leg of the journey. And I’m declaring right here–right now, in this next chapter—I insist on there being more days like this. Where the couch does all the work—and I just show up!
