Up, and already having sent emails to director and prospect, then to Wednesday 1B students. Kids are up, calm… for the most part. Hoping to get out on another run today. Don’t care if it’s short or not, just 4 or more miles. What stopped me yesterday was that goddamn hoodie and the lower-back tightness. Have to stretch more.
Slept in today, till about 7:20-something. Sipping coffee, and I’m telling myself that I won’t get a latte but I’m sure I will. Something about that cinnamon and whip cream harmony that just makes it, well, harmonious. I don’t know.
How do I wake at 4am, and make it not just a habit but the ONLY WAY? Bed earlier, less wine definitely, and write in journal by hand, note form… yes, more notes, less sentences. Start now…. Sun out, birds, kids wanting to play, me having to work. Memorable skirmish, given the events in the world and this whole virus thing.
Up to 32 pages in this doc, 17K+ words. Just need this book done, this new journal… Wine, notes from the SB and Cab last night, nothing capturing me. Write only wine, yeah I know I wrote that yesterday, but…… Connect everything to wine. Everything? What does a blog have to do with wine? Tech and being and AE for an ISP? I don’t know, you need wine for the contrast, for the goal… you want a wine shop with what you make, your own label, three wines… SB, a Syrah, and Cab.
Still nothing from Deb at Dutcher, so I turn to my boy Elton in Napa, one of the owners of Robert Craig. Hoping to do a call with him later, get an order locked in. Nothing too crazy, just some bottles to write about.. anything WINE to write about.
