Marathon Monday

Marathon Monday usually marks the first day of the year that I pick up a tennis racket again. The first game of the year is always highly amusing. The body cannot believe that it has to move around again after a whole winter of comfortably situated in warm layers of clothes. The shot seems absurd and the movements of the body seems a savage violation of the peace and harmony it has achieved over a whole winter of doing nothing.
