Sweet Thursday

September 3rd, 2009

I love Thursdays so much more than Fridays because of the anticipation. The hardest part of the work week is done, the weekend is ahead and there’s a louche holiday feeling about Thursday night. This evening as a friend and I drove over the causeway to the island near my house for dinner, I could feel Friday coming in on the tide. The marsh grass was a vivid electric green, the boats at rest, the light a blessing on everything it touched. It was a special ordinary moment. Thank you, Thursday.
