I am laying here in bed, in silence, with nothing but the sound of the heater kicking in, and I am sinking slightly into the soft mattress. I also occasionally hear the train right outside my window go by, and it reminds me of the freighters that glide by the island and the sound that they make. I’m glad that I planned this trip downstate. Even though its nice to relax with my family, it’s also nice to be able to relax alone. Not worrying about work – and not worrying about my next headache, having to listen to the TV on 3 times too loud. As for the rest of my break… watch more movies, maybe rent one more game for my new Wii, finish lesson plans, and play some guitar. So for those about to rock… to sleep, that is… I salute you.
