On Any Sunday


It’s a day to rush around and finish packing and gather clean clothes together while baking a cake.  I did say that.  We will hit our usual Sunday night meeting, crash, and get up so far before dawn that light will arrive as we do.


It’s going to be an ok day despite us on this special Holiday.

On Any Holiday


On the Star of India.

Our Holiday at Sea has advanced a day, and I am scurrying around finishing tomorrow's errands today.  Suitcases up, change the pages in the Appointment book…yes, we still use an paper appointment book, let everybody know we aren’t home, and especially let security know.  Acres of small things I had put off till tomorrow instead tomorrow seems to be today.

I should make a poem out of
counting underwear, of
counting socks and shirts, and all the
diamonds I don’t have in hand
to wear on formal night
as formal night is formal night
on any sea, on any holiday.
Laughter is allowed as are dreams
and smiles and love,
on any holiday.


  • Himself:  He is on Vacation.  He’s allowed to confuse dates.  It’s a first.
  • Herself:  Enjoyed last night.  Over my headache about todau, disappointed that we will be missing a night on the QM, but looking forward to four nights at sea and a Jeep ride.
  • Reading:  Nothing but I have a pile to take with me.
  • Balance:  Not worrying about any of it.
