Conference room, just wrote my first 500-word piece for day.  Find new vision and habit in such while still being focused as Mom urged.  Strong lecture this morning, I feel, in English 5.  Forgot wallet at home but luckily had enough change in bag to get a large coffee.  So I’m more than surviving this morning—  Steely.

Earlier, around 4AM, after getting up to check on Alice and Emma, “Maybe my adjunct reality and dull consistency reflects my efforts.” Felt alarmed, motivated, pushed to be more wild, speedy in teaching, grading, writing.  Energy perpetuates, paradiddles till now, this sitting.
