COLLECTED

 

Calm 

The opposite of excited and just slightly more awake than asleep.   

Sitting on a bar stool and watching half a glass of Scotch eat away at four ice cubes.   Swirling the glass makes a nice clinking sound.   

An hour ago I might have had worries,  but not anymore.     Tomorrow, maybe,  yes,   most certainly,  but tonight no such thoughts are on my mind.  

 

Calm.  Relaxed and in a charitable mood.   

It's a shame you aren't here.   I might be able to look you in the eye.
