Just living and doing. Feeling pretty calm today. A nice feeling.

Fall is perhaps the nicest season to smoke a pipe (not that there is a bad season) it is cool and crisp outside in the early morning when I walk with my dog. The solitude at 5am is peaceful and pleasant. I usually say the Rosary during my walk, and on a day like today, it feels just right... all things meld together to make a nice start to the day.
I am sitting outside Educational Complex #3 (the building where I have two back-to-back classes today). I have 15 minutes between the end of the first class and the start if the second. I am now typing on the small laptop that I use in the room that wirelessly projects images to a large screen. It is easier to take the laptop outside with me while I have a pipe rather than lock it back up in the podium cabinet like I will after class. I am surprised how far it's WiFi connection reaches. I am at a bench about 50 feet away from the building. It is a beautiful, cool Fall day. My vanilla tinctured burley is a perfect complement to the morning along with my coffee.
I do not seem to understand how time seems to be moving so much more rapidly, I do not mean this in the lifetime feeling of aging that we all feel as we grow older. Instead, I mean how it seems like 24 hours in a given day seems so much shorter than it did before. I really do not think I am trying to do more in a given 24 hour period (work, life activities) than I did, say 10 years ago, but it sure seems that it is harder to get things accomplished in that same period. And, I do not really understand why.
Hectic and busy as usual, but tomorrow is Friday!!!! I believe I may catch up on things tomorrow and be able to have a more normal work flow. If possible, I may spend the afternoon marinating myself a bit too!
