The Good Life
Don't you just want to lay down there with them?
Sometimes, I say to myself, wow, I'd love to just lay down there with them!
The daybed in my office has become Nap Central.
And look at these feline nappers!
They have a two story Napping Heaven!
We should only be so lucky.
In Israel, they have menuchat --a few hours in the afternoon when the shops close and people gather to eat lunch--the main meal of the day--with friends and family. Even school ends before lunch, with sports and music lessons and scouts after menuchat.
They say that "only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noon-day sun."
Sigh! In America, only dogs, cats and babies take a daily nap.
Somehow, in our Puritan work ethic, we are missing out on the Good Life. (Capitalization on Purpose).
We will be taking a break from formal lessons this week. At least, I will. I have midterms tomorrow and Friday. No menuchat for the weary! N. is working on his Kamana. I will be a week behind him.
