Long Night & Day

I had a computer problem at work last night and they called me just after midnight. I've been on the phone ever since.
We got the system up this morning but as luck would have it, I had back to back meetings until lunch.
When I got a break I walked outside and looked up and there was not a cloud in the sky. The sun was warm and the plants were rejoicing.
I found a soft piece of grass out in the yard, laid down on my back and blissed out for a while. I noticed the earthy smell of the grass and I could hear birds singing spring songs.
I can't remember anything that felt so good. I used to do that daily when I was a kid. I would lay there for hours and watch the clouds trying to see images form.
I'm not sure why grown ups stop doing fun things.
I thought I was through for the day but my pager went off and I'm back to the races.
