I’m posting from my phone in the absence of wifi. Oh sure, I could use the wired desktop but I would rather whine.
That’s all I’m good for today.
So, I’m working from home and I’m being pretty productive, I might add. BUT I’ve gotten into the bad habit of keeping the TV on in the background. This is odd behavior for me. I don’t watch television and because I don’t watch it, I only get local channels. So, I’m pretty much stuck with the local NBC affiliate because it comes in the clearest.
I was up at 4:00 today. I turned on the news at 4:30 and it went on and on until the end of the Today Show at 11. This is not good for me. Nope. Not good.
So I turned it off and worked in my normal silence for the remainder of the workday. Much nicer.
At 4, I had an online poetry workshop. Oh, how it did my evil heart good. We concentrated on the concept of home and identified a specific room in a specific place and went through the five senses of being in that room. I have six pages of notes for a prose poem about my dining room. I can’t wait to dig into it a little later tonight.
Right now, I have the news on. I thought it important to tune into the national news. It’s depressing. Now I’m going to turn it off and do something creative.
Be good to yourself.
My favorite spot on the planet is Pocahontas County, West Virginia. From June 24th to June 30th, I attended Allegheny Echoes Writing Class. Wow. Just wow! I am renewed.
