The Simple Life

"Simple as a babe is new.
Simple as a tree and as simple as a cloud.
It's as simple as the simplest things have always been."
Maury Yeston

DAY 319:  There are evenings like last night and tonight that bring to mind the song "What Do the Simple Folk Do?" from Camelot and the beautiful song "Simple" from Nine quoted above.  Those precious moments when the often mad pace of my life comes to a screeching halt.  Those delightful, restful evenings when I can come home from school with absolutely NO work to do, no afterschool meetings, no appointments, and NO REHEARSAL. 

It's a time to pretend for just a moment what it would be like to have a MUCH simpler life with a job that I can leave at work and evenings of leisure, instead of commitments.  Nights when I can go to bed as early as necessary and actually get a full eight hours of sleep before heading to work again in the morning.  I'm certainly grateful for nights like this ... ahhhhhh ...
