beating the duck

Until my summer teaching is done with, I will always feel like it’s me, racing against the clock to put up a post each day here, on Ocean.

Sort of like this guy, whom I watched today, on Lake Waubesa. I took a couple of hours out for an evening bike ride. I was pedaling, the ducks were paddling. From my perspective there on the shore, they had one up on him.

Sometimes I think that the day wins: I cannot keep up, at least not here on Ocean. Lucky me. My day is better than it appears on Ocean. Lucky me.
