So today, nothing. Playing chess on the computer, reading, watching mindless videos. No work outs. No Arabic calligraphy practice or language tapes. Haven't swung the boken around or written anything substantial. Just this and some correspondence. Tried to nap, but I'm not that good at sleeping any time.
Short walks. Seeing how friend's books are selling on amazon. There is ice today and I regret that gin and tonic can't be found here (actually, I know where to find the gin, but whether I call it 'tonic' or 'quinine' the mixer is unavailable). Picked up some margarine at the PX on our long trip yesterday. It's weird. Like drinking water out of a glass I had not realized how long it has been or what a simple luxury it can be.
Relaxing is good, a day doing nothing occasionally is good for the soul. I think I might be able to do it for two days, maybe three, before I started to go a little crazy.
