And the office hour starts.

Who’s to come?  I’m guessing no one.  So I watch the clock and think about going to get another coffee, as I always do.  Then I think, how can I make today wildly different and deliciously contrasted from other days?  Running is a beneficial start, surely.  But what else?  How does an adjunct get closer to what he wants and as far away from this pattern as anything or anyone can, and with efficiency?  Think THINKING think—  reading, imagine a large audience at my 12, waiting to see what I’ll say; eyes wide and ready for my words.  Needing my words.  Anything can be done.  Any story can be written.
