Like a Sabbath, Independence Day.
I will not drive, I will not touch money. I have already said thank you to Grace and the dogs. I have already encouraged students with brief messages.
Thanks and grace and song to celebrate the food I am privileged to have, free of hunger.
Thanks and chores and dance to celebrate the house I am privileged to have, free of vagabondage.
Thanks, thanks, thanks for cool water, for good books, and for good dogs who smell of grass and sunshine.
