"Do you know, mother...?"

Cloudy, chilly, wet. Currently, the temperature is 57˚F, but the windchill puts the feel at 49˚F.

Pretty much any way I look at it, April has been a travesty. Much of what needed to be done, workwise, hasn't been done. I've lost day after day to anger and depression and worry and fear. A big check came weeks late, which meant that a trip to Manhattan that I needed to take at the beginning of the month still hasn't happened. The ms. for Dear Sweet Filthy World, which I should have turned in a week ago, is still incomplete. There's research in South County for The Starkeeper that desperately needed to be done this month, but none of it has, in part because of the inclement weather. There was an unexpected medical bill. And it's time for me to worry about Sirenia Digest #123, though it feels like I only just put out #122. All in all, it's a mess. And sitting here at this moment I honestly do not know how I'm going to fix it.


I'm not sure how to follow that.

I just googled "how to get out of the weeds". Autocomplete showed "How to get out of the friend zone" was a more popular search.

You're not alone. It's been a tough April in Maine as well. Yesterday our friend Michelle brought her 2 year old border collie over to play with our 1 year old border collie. I watched them romp for a few minutes and then announced: Sorry guys, I have to work, my inner Protestant is demanding that I go finish revising the user documentation for the fabulous open-source software project I wrote that no one in the world cares about. I didn't get very far in that. Do you have any idea how tedious it is to revise user documentation for software that nobody cares about?

Still -- it's all going to happen eventually. My inner Protestant (worth ethic) is seriously pissed that schedules are slipping, but that's its problem. I'm doing the best I can. And I've no doubt that's true of you as well and the stuff you're about to unload on the world will be brilliant.
