First we have morning reverie: Too-toot-tootle-toot, daa-daa-daa-daa-daa-duhh.
Following that, our retreat mantra: There will be no talking whatsoever.
Then how our progress will be made: By fits and starts.
Then how our progress will appear with reflection: As peaks and plateaus.
Blame it on the bossa biorhythms.
Peaks and plateaus, fits and starts. I can relate.
