Note to self #1
Whenever you are feeling stressed, J.S., make a list. Really. Do it. This afternoon (January first.) I was feeling clouded, and confused. But! I realized two things that I needed to get down on paper (A list in what order I was going to read several books, and work I needed to get done before a conference.) so, with my trusty moleskine, I wrote (with calming slowness) the two lists. After doing so, I honestly felt much better and was able to work, and write other things more easily.
