i am kidding myself. i was thinking about that vacation more on the way home. there is no way i could spend 2 weeks doing nothing by myself. i would go nuts.
i realized this while talking with my son. he told me that i could go to jamaica. i've wanted to and haven't been. i responded, without thinking, that i would love to....that i could call the bob marley school and work there for a couple of weeks. i responded this way with every place he suggested...some organization or other with which i could "work" while i "vacation" there. he let me go on before he pointed out to me that i was incapable of taking what "normal" people call a vacation.
i spend my weekends volunteering somewhere. i took thursday and friday this week off work to work at the AIDS conference. my volunteer time is vacation.

it turns out afterall that i cannot go to the conference tomorrow because the woman i have been trying to fire is sick. i am supposed to work the LifeBeat table from 2:30 to 6:00. anyone want to take my place? it will be fun. it is a cool organization.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
