February 2

This has been a day of getting little things done. There have been some projects on my personal agenda that have been on the back burner for a while. That poor burner has gotten overloaded, so I decided before I could no longer find the stove, I'd better tackle some of them.

I also went out to run errands this afternoon. It was a lovely day, and I was glad to get out in it.

The thing I need to do with the rest of tonight is write to a couple of friends. So I'm going to cut this short and go do that. I hope the work week starts well for us all.

...I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

In light of the events of the day, I've been thinking a lot about this poem, which is a life-long favorite of mine.
