Good morning; it’s currently 46ºF under rainy skies and thus, The Jorkie refuses to go outside. A long day will ensue for her.

Though it may not seem like it, think I’m track to find the balance - in The Work blocks and in online writing: postprandial second block has to stay, no matter what. Requirement for daily repeatability will have to be replaced for the long-term benefit of the staggered replenishment of my self-respect-o-meter, which falls precipitously without that afternoon chunk (hence the return to these pieces, other than I simply like writing them).

Asked myself: if I could pick the schedule I want, would it be the one I’m attempting (the AM-blitzkrieg)? No. I wanted my afternoon chunk - because the rest of the day feels like reporting to a job I hate but with coworkers I love. At least the ones in the household. Outside, eh.

Considering a short solo podcast if for no other reason than I want to get better at using the equipment and the break between Socialized Recluse episodes is turning out to be far greater than I anticipated. Every time I use it, I feel like I’m starting from scratch.

Starting to make this a place I can noodle about it throughout the day, these SitReps being the start of the day… changes changes – and hopefully, my full exodus from social media forthcoming.

In other news, re/emergence0002 , the latest yarn in my collaboration with composer Elizabeth Joan Kelly is now available for a limited time.

On with the day.
