Attic Day 2023

Sunday, December 3, 2023 is Attic Day.

Within the Kingdom of Leisure two days have, historically, proven to be the most important of each year: Field Mowing Day and Attic Day.

It is surely documented enough at this point for no explanation to be needed or offered.

Interestingly, I tend to be the first to publicize Field Mowing Day while Arpy generally recognizes Attic Day first. Both are extremely important to the lifeblood of the community. Both are the very DNA of tKoL. The two days generally bookend the slide; one looking forward and the other looking back.

And as is tradition, here are my three offerings:


Attic Day offering 1

So many years could have killed me

Maybe should have killed me

2020 is an obvious pick but unscathed I am


The eighties stand on a podium

Others I obliviously know nothing about

There is as much surprise as awe


‘23 was heavenly highs and hellish lows

The worst and the best — a draw I suppose

Look at me now I have escaped orbit…


Defeat remains a remote concept

Wounds heal as forever scars

So much learning so much changing


And looking around there is so much

Beauty and art and thought and light

To roll the dice for another lap ’round
