If I'd really thought ahead, I would have brought my hiking boots.  I didn't.  I spent my time in Boston ten steps behind the other three in the group.  I only tripped and fell once.  It*s amazing what counts for accomplishment.  It*s also amazing what counts for freedom.  I declare today a free day.

These feet
Walked the Freedom Trail
On Saturday.
These feet
Are completely done in.
They do not want to walk
Anywhere at all
This week.
They may limp short distances.
Really they do not want to walk
At all.
These feet
Are happy
To be propped up
For the morning,
Next to the cat
Asleep in the sun.
These feet
Are free for the morning.
Completely free.
