To entertain readers with a story of an unusual day
To inform readers how to organize a day away from home
To persuade readers to take some time for themselves
To describe to readers what it is like to rediscover a city
I will have set no clock...
I do not want to know my name...
We need hours of aimless wandering...
A day away acts as a spring tonic.
Wouldn't forget what she wanted to wear.
Wouldn't have to make a decision in the morning.
Would be able to sleep late in the morning.
Would be as stylishly dressed as possible.
Once a year or so I give myself a day away.
On the eve of my day of absence, I begin to unwrap the bonds which hold me in harness.
I enter and leave public parks, libraries, the lobbies of skyscrapers, and movie houses.
It can dispel rancor, transform indecision, and renew the spirit.
