Someone To Watch Over

“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.
