Inertia

Ah, what should I do? I've already been on Facebook twice today, and checked my email. This is summertime, when the living is easy, fish are jumping, and I finally have time to do all those things that I wanted to do but didn't have time for.

I pick up the guitar, strum a G chord, an A minor, a D7, then put the guitar down.

Maybe I should work on "Alfie" at the piano. I laboriously make it to the second page and give up.

I know I could escape this dull anxiety if I could just apply myself to something. That's happiness, getting absorbed in some activity, even work, so that the time slips away without even noting it, but it's as if a mysterious force were keeping me from attaining the necessary momentum. I have a bad case of inertia.

I pick up the French book that's been sitting at my bedside for ages; I haven't studied French in years. I make it through a page, looking up about twelve words (funny how above is "dessus" and below is "dessous"), start the next page, then I put the book down.

I should probably put away those clothes that have been strewn across the floor of my closet for the last year or so.

Nah, I think I'll blog.

suggestions

have a drink, then start cooking, then continue drinking while cooking and while listening to old mix tapes. Before you know it, you'll be doing all kinds of things, like starting little projects that you won't finish, and forgetting thaT YOU'RE COOKING BUT THAT'S OK CUZ YOUR DRINKING...and then it's time for bed. (unless you are fine to finish the night on the floor where you passed out looking for something under the couch.)

hey--works for me!

Re: suggestions

I like it!! The good thing about drinking is that you no longer feel bad about not getting anything done. As long as you don't burn your food while passed out on the floor in front of the couch. Jim Dandy to the rescue!
