Someone coming into room and distracting me, throwing out off and off rhythm.  But I let them know I’m working.  He seemed not so much put off as he did surprised.  I need my time… I need to collect at day’s inception.  We need to find time for ourselves, and we can we just need be committed, a bit rigid, and at times curt with others.  Even those we like, or even love.  The guy who just came into the office, disrupting my typing, is a great, very kind and convivial guy.  I need this time, though.  I need be educated by my morning.  And this morning, as I early wrote, teaches me again the importance of inventorying, simplicity and singularity.  Found myself getting stressed, then looked at all I had open on laptop, all the clutter and cords and books and receipts I had bunched and punched into backpack.  “You can’t keep blaming the hotel.” I self-instructed.

Today, Friday… Don’t just surrender to the proximity of the weekend.  Be more than merely motivated.  Be ablaze in your life, with your story and what you want.  Forget brainstorming, planning, measuring some trajectory, if not just for today.  Act.  Actuate.  Run… faster.  If you’re out of breath, run faster till you adjust to your new, exhilarating pace.  Creating entails trial, stress, self-test.  As I said in class yesterday, don’t resist what stresses or perplexes you.  Rather, love it.  Let yourself be doused in its element and eclectic synaptic net…

Letting my mind wander, thinking about what I want—  What do you want?  What do you see yourself doing for the rest of your life?  What does it feel like?  What do. You hear?  See?  Smell?  What hits your tongue, what flavors speak?  Don’t get distracted.  Hold to your envisage.  Remain en pensant.

Papers taking shape…. What do you see as a result of your work, your efforts?  In the composition process, especially with a paper like this, wrapping up the semester, we need be honest, objective.  Do NOT forget your voice, your opinion.  The point of this paper is that you construct an idea that came from you and that you built and explored, developed and manifested, made into a manuscript.

So…. What do you see taking shape?  What do you want us to walk away with?  And, yes to go backwards, why did you select this direction?  If you can answer that clearly, you’ve just added more dimension, dimensions, to your final paper.

Embrace all tasks.

Especially the ones you look least forward to doing.

Those are where the most valuable and enriching gems wait.
