Calm

All four kids are napping. Dickens’ Dombey & Son rests on my armchair. Dishes done, washer and dryer humming on the landing, and no dinner to prep because we’re eating with relatives at my parents’ home tonight. The tyranny of the urgent often overtakes my days, but ten minutes of peace, beauty, and solitude usually sets things straight.
