A Rare Moment of Peace

Nearing the end of a week dampened (drenched) by 1:00 a.m. process flow sketching followed by 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. calls with Tokyo and concluding with 14 hours of linear programming (no, i don't know what that is... and it's still not over). Glad the end is in sight. So despite feigning disappointment that the US Open women's finals were postponed until tomorrow, I'm enthusiastically basking in the overwhelmingly relieving turn of events that allows me to spend an evening doing nothing at all. In fact, my cumulative exertion in the past hour hardly exceeds the efforts of a glacier to proactively move itself or of Paul Ryan to solve the deficit. I've lit a candle, poured a glass of wine and read a good book (some mental exertion required).

Life will always be a circus and we all play our parts in the chaos... whether we have ten balls in the air or just a few, we're all juggling. But maybe sometimes it's worth letting one drop to look around and enjoy the act.
