Two sentences.

I have been a little on the lazy, busy, don't-feel-like-it kick recently, which I think is pretty normal for anyone. We can all forgive ourselves for that.


What begins as a few days of break time can metastasize into full blown complacency if one is not careful. Best to keep moving a little so the muscles don't atrophy.

I tell my students to keep a journal. They look at me like I'm a freak, the notion of writing everyday makes them nervous. But then I tell them that I really don't care what it is. I'm not looking for the next emergence of Max Frisch (Which is really insufferable of me, I think).

Just set yourself to the task of writing every day. Just two sentences. That's all it takes.

Here are mine for today:

Today I ate three bowls of FrankenBerry. Why do so many cereals rip up the roof of my mouth so bad?

We call that "cereal shred." And I am all out of Franken Berry as of Saturday. I must needs visit the supermarket.
