a monday in autumn

November rain; a grey mood. Dark indoors— all the incandescents on since midday.

Wrestling with invisibles, lately, and frustrated with things beyond my control. Sometimes the freelance life has too many things outside one’s control (although I believe that’s true of most lives).

The only thing for it is to focus on the things one can control. Mustering the motivation and discipline to do so can be a challenge at such times, when it’s most required. Start with something small; something that feels within reach, accomplishable. Build momentum from there. Or—

get utterly lost in something large and sprawling; forget about time and its arbitrary constraints. Be in the thing like a fish in water and don’t allow yourself  to think too much.
