- Arose today at 9 a.m.
- Toast and cherries for breakfast.
- Bike ride to the river and then to pick up a newspaper.
- Read the paper. Did the crossword in ten minutes flat. (Probably not true. But it was easy.)
- Finished reading The White Lioness, a great swath of it.
- Opened documents for the poems I was planning to revise today, four of them.
- Bike ride to giant antique and craft fair across Hwy. 20.
- Hopped in the car to buy potato chips and magazines.
- Read magazine. Ate potato chips.
- Looked at poems.
- Helped daughter with documents for a job interview.
- Revised one poem. (It may still be in need of further surgery. It's a fixed form poem. I'll say no more.)
- Decided one poem will not be in the manuscript, thus needs no revision at this time.
- Warmed up stellar leftovers for dinner.
- Bike ride to another part of the river.
- Saw an osprey.
- Shot footage via bike-cam on the way home.
- Finished reading magazine.
- Watched two episodes of The Wire.
On second thought, maybe "work" isn't the right category for this exercise. Let's just wrap this all up into a category we'll call "summer." With work on the side.
Thank you for putting a string of such days into perspective. I've been trying to come up with a category for such events as you've described - minus the bike rides - and now I remember what I've really always known: It's summer.ReplyDelete
I found you at Ann Cannon's Writing Corner ... and enjoyed spending some time with your poetry and reflections. Renae S.
