Thursday one continent at a time

One's haste to precipitate the 
weekend works a tricky deception 
on a perfectly decent, sometimes 
even harmless day called, Thurs. 
I keep trying to reclaim the day 
for a wholeness like any other's, 
but anticipation sometimes chafes 
against my plans. I know very well,
at such times, it's a sign that I 
need to be back in Barbados for a 
while, if only for its view of Al-
exandria. Time needs to calm down
for a moment, take a breath. 

Possibly that pulmonary application
is what always makes me feel a press
of the stethoscope where only a meth-
odical tidying up is taking place.

One has this sense that the breath-
ing act is so obviously the matter
of highest interest, that we have
no time to waste to assay its con-
tinuance. Getting on with the week-
end, who can fret a grain of sand
or some other such alien intrusion,
given the highest likelihood of a
riotous mess, if all goes smoothly?
Now is the time for tending to the
intake valves and tuning the exhaust.
Let Monday's maid look after the debris.
