11/13/19 – Day Three for the second pass at 100. In a mood this morning. Coffee helping. Was going to go to sbux for the usual morning latte, but traffic on Stony Point was more monstrous than I’ve ever seen, so I immediately rules NO, turned around in the street off to right, not sure its name, and headed to HQ. Meeting in BMK at 10:30, then back to office. Have two proposals to work on, really 3, then have speakers group at 12:30. Somehow have to find time to grade. Should I not run today? NO, you need to run. Just don’t do one of the longer routes. Maybe 2 out and 2 back. That would bring me to 17 miles for the week, I believe. Growling inwardly as I didn’t wake early, no shock.
Knowing now, from work, I need go further into my truths, into my narration, I’m now understanding, looking at the clock stare back at me with numbers 8:36 AM. Much to do in day, but I’m turning off the boat’s motor, and letting natural gusts encourage my travel, production this morning. Really, I don’t have to move intently till 9. Have 22 minutes. 5 hours left in fast. 16 hours, this one. Stopped eating early last night as I was tired, done wit the day, decided to be lazy and watch one of those Paranormal shows, a mistake, rather than take notes. Just little notes, that’s productivity. Why didn’t I do that?
Questioning self and wondering what’s at the end of this 100-day dash. I know, and I see it, I merely need practice and tie-in more discipline.
Grading some small works from 1B class. Letting go of the stress and mood of the morning. Set appointment to revisit a site in Petaluma. Going to come into office on Saturday, finish some contracts and get better arranged and organized at desk. Now, 4am is not something I wish to do but have to. There is no other practice for a writer and business blogger like me, to know my Now and free self of moods and nay-saying twits around me that only complain and devote energy to citing what’s missing and wrong with everyone else rather than assemble more sight and beat in their own narrated place.
This project, this new bunching of 100 days where I’m to study each step in my character carousal to his There, to what he sees and needs and dreams, me here thinking that I’m thinking too much, and that if I were to wake at 4am how so much would be solved. Not feeling too much of yesterday’s 6.3 miles, or the day before’s 7, so I might try for 5+ again. Not sure, but need time to collect. Not stress, be in my story and lead my one-man militia to liberation. Sonic….. if I didn’t have Sonic, if I were stuck in a fucking tasting room still, I don’t know what I’d be writing. Never mind that. I’m here, seeing IT. The IT to it all, all this… what I’m writing, what I’ll be speaking tonight in class.
Cup 1, done. Time for another.
