Good morning; it’s currently 33ºF under cloudy skies and, as of today, I can get my covid-jab. Put in a call to the adjacent southern county since mine is, to put it likely, an organizational clusterfuck. We shall see.

Thinking this morning especially of something John Steinbeck wrote in his essential WORKING DAYS:

“Mustn’t think of its largeness but only of the little picture while I am working. Leave the large picture for planning time.” (18 June 1938–9:45).

Use the run and the non-writing times for the big picture, focus on the tiny details in the Forest-ed chunks. Repeat daily.

And so it goes; the day awaits.
