“The art of losing isn’t hard to master.”
- Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979), American poet: “One Art.”
It is noon.
Not “High Noon,” the 1952 film wherein actor Gary Cooper, a lone sheriff in a cowardly town, faces the prospect of fighting a band of outlaws by himself and possibly losing his life in the process.
Nothing so dramatic and nail-biting.
No ticking clock for me.
Rather, I am taking a break from work.
