Nauttimista (Enjoying)

Today was a lovely day. The sky was blue, the trees were green and the water was clear. As I was in the library attempting to read Wordsworth's poems for class on Thursday, the sun beckoned me.

I went to the Terrace behind the Union, to enjoy the sun, lake, and breeze... and a drunk British *presumably* English professor talking to a fellow student. heh heh. I enjoyed my mother's cooking, brought with me from home in a Ziploc container, and the day's newspaper. I then walked down the Lakeshore Path, taking in Nature's beauty. Everyone around me was running, biking, or generally in a hurry. As for me? I'd rather take it slow and steady, and enjoy.

I now have a lovely peace about me, thanks to the beautiful day, and the sunset on the lake. Nothing get bring me down today. A part of me thinks this peace is not of my own doing, if you catch my drift.

I really do love Madison.
