pondering pastimes

So what should I do this afternoon? study my Russian lesson? expand my online  book inventory? repot a thirsty “Wandering Jew?” walk in the garden, read a novel –write a poem? I could get lost on google… visit friends abroad…who probably are sleeping now, giving their blogs a rest. sit here and daydream? fix something for dinner… clean the garage? get out my zillions of … Continue reading pondering pastimes
