Yet more grumbling...  

What I long for, this week, are vast, uncharted tracts of time.  Time that stretches out to the horizon!  Time you can't ride to the end of in a single day, that has enough space for a house and a herd of free-range cattle.  Time that easily houses a nap, some homework, some studying, some goofing off, and a meal or two, and then still... more time leftover.

What I've got are tiny, square, suburban plots of time, each one enough for maybe half of a homework problem and two lines of code.  Fence-lined time with no trees on it, half of it covered in concrete.

(Of course, if I had my wide open prairie time, I'd just sit around moping for something to do.)

Knowing yourself can be such a burden sometimes

Love your description of time! I have had longings JUST like this with no way to describe the feeling just right. Thanks!

Also, I like your Ursula Vernon icon! (see my default icon :D)

Thanks! It helps that I get really creeped out in new suburban developments... :)

Ursulav does make for wunnerful icons.
