What a glorious April day in Austin! And my first day of vacation. I cannot remember when I've had a whole week with no obligations. Kids are raised. Degrees are conferred. No take-home work. No work-around-the-house work. Not even any travel plans with their flight times, arrival times, and check-in times. Just MY time. If I travel it will be on the earth. Shoe leather or tire rubber will do nicely. Sleep when I feel sleepy; eat when I feel hungry. Such a luxury to be reduced to the elements: air, water, earth, and fire.
