I wake up without an alarm to a quiet house. After a good sleep I perceive things clearly enough to notice them. At night I’m so distracted by my own mind that it’s all I can hear but in the morning I can hear the fridge humming and tires sloshing on the interstate a half mile away. I make coffee, go to the bathroom, then pour a cup and sit on my couch where I work. In this way I think of all the things I need to do that day and it doesn’t worry me yet because I still have the day. Here I make a list. I order it so all I have to do to keep going is look at the top of the list. It’s very important to keep going.
