Ten minutes out of one weekend.

The house is quiet at four o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. Cheryl and Beth have gone shopping and I am home alone. The end credits began to roll on a movie on cable and I switched the TV off. The sun is shining on the first full day of day-light savings time, but all the blinds are closed. It isn’t completely dark though; the light shining between the blinds keeps the house in a twilight glow. The whispering hum of my computer’s fan can be heard from across the room. The air is slightly warm but the wood floor feels cool under my bare feet. Time marches on with the steady wandering of my mind on this lazy Sunday afternoon.
