Mardi blah

I must be the only person who hates Tuesday more than Monday. Mondays are fine. On Mondays all is open, bright — blank and hopeful. Hit the ground running. Made a commitment, went to commitment, on foot both ways. Read for school. Made it to meeting, sat through meeting. Went to school.

Darkness follows, and it has nothing to do with the cloudy sky overhead.

Bad news is something I can't handle at all, I guess. Bad behavior creates so many ripple-effects of negativity. Where am I supposed to "go" — in my head / with my body / for my meaningful vocation/engagement with life?

There is too much to do in 2010. Too much to do before the holidays/semester's end. Too much to do today.

Winged Victory of Samothrace says, "Just do it."

But —

Doing is just too hard.

...hence the headlessness.
