I have taken great comfort all week in the fact that this week would have been crazy even if I had stayed on-island over the holiday weekend. The relief I felt as I moved through downtown gathering some stuff for the weekend was almost palpable, like a spring in the step after a kind of winter.
Came across this recent performance of “Deadlines and Commitments” by the Killers from their Battle Born album. There songs are always just ambiguous enough to be a little elusive. But the sense of the song is definitely appropriate after a long week of getting lots of things done.
This is the time of year, both school year and calendar year, where things get consistently crazy. I’m hoping to avoid that some, making a point of finding a place of rest whenever I can.
