I seem to have given up on getting out of bed early on Saturdays to go to the pool. Another lost discipline. I really do crave the time in the morning to wake up slowly and not early, not to an alarm of any kind. This is probably the most significant indicator of my real state of mind, that after four decades, I’ve stopped adhering to any form of discipline on Saturday mornings. Even in college, I was out of bed early on Saturdays – late mornings were reserved for Sundays. But now I need both days to recharge and restore.
