When I’m not working, I look over the mountains and I just can’t believe how gorgeous they are. Colorful trees cover their massive sides, and the blue sky and white clouds make everything more luminous. Then there are the stars and the moon at night, like layers of beauty. The fact that they are there amazes me. How did they get there anyway?
When I’m not working, I’m usually playing my bass on the porch looking at all this while I play. I realize that I am where I am because of all the work and homework that I’ve done. Well, that is, if you want to call it homework, since I do live here.
But when I don’t do what I’m told, I get two hours of work on Saturday. Saturdays and Sundays are work free, unless you do something wrong.
There is one thing I have a hard time with: getting homework done. Part of the problem is I’m not very good at managing my time. Managing my time is hard, because there is so much work, but somehow I get it all done, just in the nick of time.
And when I do, there is my bass waiting to be played under the sky looking at the mountains.
