This is my, "downtime." If I don't stop and watch the nighthawks, or the spiders, or nicely knit details-if I don't do it now, when will I? I can focus on a task easily enough, but focusing on the unnecessary? Who has time for that? I should, I should, but I rarely do. I won't argue my life would be better for watching spiders spin webs (if being in possession of a history degree has taught me nothing else it is that sitting and watching spiders spin webs can give you all sorts of crazy ideas, but I digress) or migrating birds, but I would almost certainly be better for the un-allotted time. Children know how to improvise, or at least they did until we started micromanaging their playtime.

This is a nighthawk, if you are out at dusk try looking up.
Or perhaps you prefer your Nighthawks on the melancholy/sci-fi side...
