Playin' Hooky

Wouldn't it be so sweet to not work for a day? The phone wouldn't ring, the demands wouldn't come, you could just be. It sounds marvelous.
I remember the last day of school when I was finishing 3rd grade. It was only a 1/2 day. When I got home I sat on the grassy hill in the front yard in shorts and barefeet under a blue sky. I don't think I've ever felt so free and carefree again in my whole life.
Being carefree is a difficult state to be in. Consumed by responsibilities and the never ending list of "shoulds" finding a moment to appreciate a light breeze, a blue sky, the feel of grass between your toes, and a sense of stillness....this rarely happens. I should like it, if I could make it happen now and then.
