It’s beginning to sink in. I am on Renewal (sabbatical).
Earlier today, I was concerned there had not been a new message on my Blackberry for several hours. I wondered if there were something wrong with it.
Now, there was some excitement today. A furniture repair guy came to the house this morning, right before I joined a conference call for People of Faith for Equality in Virginia (POFEV). A little later, I had lunch with a friend.
But then I came home, feeling relieved that was all the stuff I had commited to for the day. I felt really tired.
I sat for awhile just looking at the yard, then raked a few old leaves, and threw a stick for Cocoa. When I tired of that I sat down again. A little later, I came in and took a nap. Awaking about an hour later, I read for awhile.
This is going to take some getting used to. But I think I am getting the hang of it.
