Let's evaluate the evidence.

Is this little episode a vacation or is it work? Let facts be submitted to a candid world:
  1. Arose today at 9 a.m.
  2. Toast and cherries for breakfast.
  3. Bike ride to the river and then to pick up a newspaper.
  4. Read the paper. Did the crossword in ten minutes flat. (Probably not true. But it was easy.)
  5. Finished reading The White Lioness, a great swath of it.
  6. Opened documents for the poems I was planning to revise today, four of them.
  7. Bike ride to giant antique and craft fair across Hwy. 20.
  8. Hopped in the car to buy potato chips and magazines.
  9. Read magazine. Ate potato chips.
  10. Looked at poems.
  11. Helped daughter with documents for a job interview.
  12. Revised one poem. (It may still be in need of further surgery. It's a fixed form poem. I'll say no more.)
  13. Decided one poem will not be in the manuscript, thus needs no revision at this time.
  14. Warmed up stellar leftovers for dinner.
  15. Bike ride to another part of the river.
  16. Saw an osprey.
  17. Shot footage via bike-cam on the way home.
  18. Finished reading magazine.
  19. 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.

  1. 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.

    I found you at Ann Cannon's Writing Corner ... and enjoyed spending some time with your poetry and reflections. Renae S.
