Do-Be-Do-Be-Do

“To be is to do.” – Plato

“To do is to be.” – Sartre

“Do-be-do-be-do.” – Frank Sinatra

This graffiti I saw in the Antioch College bathroom a half-century or so ago. It’s a good description of my last few days with unexpected time off at home.

On the doing side, I decided to take care of those nagging details I keep putting off. Went to the dentist, to the Social Security office, starting working on my taxes and such.

On the being side, I sat in the park under the plum blossoms and inhaled a bit of the approaching Spring.

And then I played songs Sinatra sang on the piano. 

Three for three!
