Lessons prepared. Other work will wait.
I enjoy the rest of a relaxing day with the family: football, phone calls, the great outdoors. Even Syfy!
Still, an uneasiness arises, like the phantom prick of a splinter removed from an old callous. I gave up YABC. It’s a deliverance, but it’s also a loss. Six years! Then I think of Susan, who told me not to leave her, not to do that to her.
The very thing I did, that I had to. For myself.
