Big snow coming, sky is thick with solids and whiteness. It’s just starting, even though it’s already 9:40am (very late morning for us – late to bed, too). The weather forecast predicted first a 6am start, then a 4am start. But really it’s a 9am start. All of which might add up to a much […]

We’re supposed to get clobbered by a Nor’easter tomorrow, starting at 6am-ish, which is expected to bring 8-12″ of snow. I’m shocked – even though it’s February, typically our meanest winter month, it’s been so mild, I didn’t see this coming. (Neither did the National Weather Service until yesterday.) Yesterday we had a very messy […]

Soft gray, all is muted. It feels comfortable. In my “room” (space, more like), not too warm (from scorching sun), not too cold (from thrusting winds). The light: bright in its way, but tamped-down, filtered. Thick, medium-high clouds pulling slowly toward south, south-west, probably part of a much larger vortex I can’t see. They are […]

And another day – a Monday, a week, a work-week for some – rolls around. This morning… ah, me. Not sure about how I feel about the weekend –mostly glum, I think. Yes, as per Andy of Headspace, these are mere “thoughts,” but I am trying to be more aware generally of what’s going on […]

Clouds, bless them. Not sure how to start today, my head feels overfull and restless. Start with the sky – things falling out of the sky the way ideas fall out of my head. Yesterday I had some fresh insights into a couple of issues. They were so vivid. I thought I’d remember them for […]

It’s 9am and the sun has been blasting its way into this room for at least an hour. Possibly longer. It’s impossibly hot without the shade pulled down. Am I really in the right space to work, or is this sort of fretting just a way of delaying things? That word, “things”… As if I […]

The last few days I’ve been feeling a strange kind of generalized anxiety. I think I should probably go back to adding in an afternoon meditation… The feeling has been with me almost all week. I described it to A. as “a disturbance in the force,” only half-jokingly. It grew out of Trump’s actions – […]

I might get interrupted here pretty quickly, before I manage to write my three pages: at 7:35 this morning, the biggest flatbed truck I’ve ever seen was idling before my house, while a big orange “man-lift” from equipment-4-rent already sat in my driveway. Any moment now I should see K. and his boss from Boston’s […]

And now it’s February, and now there’s snow on the ground. The sky overhangs it all dome-shaped – so I intuit. It’s not a “dome” you can see, as everywhere it’s an even mantled gray, apparently thick with the potential of more snow. Or rain? But there are subtle and low frequency gradations in its […]

Meditation app hiccup, couldn’t access my account this morning. I guess it’s a lesson in dependency as it exposed how dependent I am on the app (and the routine it affords). Last night I stayed up to read a link E. had sent earlier to an article by a guy called Zunger who basically is […]
