A short observation

I had a five day vacation with my wife. It was lovely, perfect really. And at the time it seemed like a long break.

But now I am back working at the library. Thunder from a nearby storm shakes the city. Life goes on. I think about lunch, cooking as it is slowly, untended on the break room stove. I am upstairs shelving the last of three carts of books, and my sense of how long this vacation was has to be revised down. Way down.

It was not long at all.

It was now the length of one beautiful cloud, drifting by on the invisible wind.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
