Tonight is one of those nights where I don't particularly have anything to say. That makes it a night when saying something, even if it's just a comment that I'm incapable of actually saying anything worth hearing, is a matter of sheer determination. Still, that's what the project requires. I want to be able to look back on March and say I accomplished my goal, even if that was only to be wordy without wisdom. Eventually, if I relearn the art of thinking in bursts longer than 140 characters or 10 seconds at a time, I can start writing things that are more worthwhile.
Exercise for the mind. Perhaps I can make a better go of it than I have of exercising for the body.
(Apropos of that, I'm going to try getting out at least once a day to walk around the block. A friend once told me her mother used to chivvy her children out of the house by saying they needed to shake the stink off them. It's a crude comment, but it's stayed with me. Walking around outside and noticing there's a world beyond my desk, my phone and even the broad world of the Internet could help me shake my own existential stink away.)
Monday offers me a new chance to be efficient, and to go to bed Monday night happy with myself and what I've gotten done, or what I've at least attempted in good faith to get done. I'm, again, determined.
I hope you all had good weekends.
