Didn’t arrive as late as I thought. Took Emma to school, and traffic everywhere. People sliding and gliding on all streets and sidestreets, even the freeway. Sipping coffee with no lid. Already one aim for day met. Starbucks, not one visit. Not so much for the money aspect, though that is very much a prime part of it, but the time that it drains and feeds upon. Yesterday I must have been at the Hopper location for close to 25 minutes between standing in line and ordering, having to repeat my order then wait for everything to be brought out. Second aim for day…. Write at lunch. NO eating off campus. No going off campus. And it was Saturday, not Sunday with the afore Starbucks visit.
Meetings all day. Or, not all day, but three throughout day. Driving back to Petaluma shortly, to meet with the prospect from Friday. Keep conversation alive and sped, steadfast. Last aim for day for day, centralize in my practice here at Sonic. Which is of course the conversation, but more than that… community, but even more than that. Not sure I have a word for it quite yet. I know what I intend and intone, but don’t have words placed. No matter. I don’t need words, or a singular word. I’m overthinking this, as I do most things. In tech, encourage and provoked to put my own definition and dote to it.
Okay… ready for this set of pages. The day. Today. Keep writing, stop thinking… want to start conversations, carry them to places I don’t know… want to feel imbalance, off-kilter (much I hate that word). Learn…. Take notes… Study. Take your time. There is no value in rushing, stressing, overthinking. Ever. Notes on post-it’s… an idea. Now I’m more than eager for the pages approaching my shore.
