Things I'm thinking about

Politics. The Dark Knight. Promises. Duty. Obligation. Affection. Drama. Guilt. Anger. Injustice. Forgiving. Being prepared. Saying what I mean. When is critical too critical? How picky is too picky? Contribution. Generosity. Pride. Egotism. Societies. Exclusion. Honor. Intelligence. Cunning. Phishing. Taking advantage. Burn-out. "You built something beautiful, and the world doesn't care."

Why do I do things? What do I get from them?

Indecision. Rashness. Stubbornness. Optimism. Enthusiasm and wellsprings of inspiration.




I picked cranberries today, about a gallon. I finished all my invoicing, and filled about a dozen orders. I'm down to a remarkably manageable load of emails. (I'm figuring I lost everything sent to me between 25 Jul and 1 or 2 August.) I also thought... a lot. Nothing cohesive. Lots of topics.

(My car is not yet unloaded, which became problematic when picking up even just a few groceries. My back drivers side door is booby trapped with crates and bins. My passenger seat is piled to the headrest with calendars and priority envelopes. It was a bit of a feat to get a pizza home in one piece, and I couldn't take the corners fast.)
