Cloudburst: Routine (a limerick and an extra)

Today’s Cloudburst offering is a bit of an adaptation on the meter, but, yes, it’s a limerick. Just the right size for the fast pace we’re in these days in our American wanderings and out of our routine.

For you non-subscribers, here’s an item for you, and an extra for subscribers, on the same subject:

A life devoid of all routine
Is lived by hungered sight, obscene;
What’s needed most in life, by all,
Is an ordered plan for things large and small. —JRMatheny

  1. How true this is! While plugging away at the routine, I start to feel a bit enslaved to it, and have the inclination to rebel against it. And then I take a day off where I haven’t PLANNED the day (at least somewhat). After a few hours, I’m so buggy I don’t know what to do with myself, and my wife is ready to kick me out of the house.

What do you think?
