  • Is this just a euphemism for taking a day off? Nope. Not always. Today I am waiting for workmen and have 3 assignments that MUST be done even though I'm home. That's cool. So I'll be working from home today, pot of tea, sounds of the woods and the footsteps of my upstairs neighbor in my ears.

    Sure beats driving to Cambridge and back home on the Pike. In effect, I am given 2 hours of my life to muse, write, or just sit in silence when I please. What a gift!
