I have a regular meeting mid-week with the Wednesday Morning Artists, and I find that I would much rather stay home, and maybe even stay in my jammies all day long. Cold country mammals have the right idea. Hibernate.
I can't mention this too often. Hibernation is an idea whose time has come. Just think of all the energy we could save if we decided to legalize hibernation. It would take far less energy to heat our homes, we wouldn't need to worry so much about clothing fashions, and those who chose to hibernate would wake nice and slim each spring. What could be better?
I am not ranting against the WMA. They are a wonderful group of men and women who take on projects to make the city of Cambridge a far more interesting and lovely place. Their first project was an enormous mosaic constructed on the masking walls in front of two burnt-out businesses. Their summer opus will embrace the history of the city, including the passage of heroine Harriet Tubman from nearby Bucktown to immortality. They do good work.
All I am saying is what is wrong with a nice winter's nap? We can look for the sunny side again when the weather warms up. Terry
