I’m sipping coffee, listening to the Amelie Soundtrack, and making oatmeal cookies. Trying to take my mind of the worries of the future and the exhaustion of this past week by focusing on the beauty of a day off.
Here’s the recipe in case you’re curious. (Sorry not GF or Vegan today. I’m taking a day off worrying about my allergies.) Warning: these are not comfort food cookies. They are healthy tasting cookies. No Butter or brown sugar.
"Still, the joy would be worth the pain- if, indeed, they went together. If there were a choice- and he suspected there was- a choice between, on the one hand, the heights and the depths and, on the other hand, some sort of safe, cautious middle way, he, for one, here and now chose the heights and the depths."
