Been a rough year. Rough few months anyway. Haven’t been feeling so hot. Stepped up physical activity as one piece of self-preservation routine. (Went kayaking today as part of that. Second time ever. First was over 2 years ago. It was hella fun. Some of the views were beautiful. Minneapolis can be spectacular. Muscles feel stiff now, will be sore tomorrow I’m sure.)

Need to refocus. Set priorities. What do I want out of the various things I put time into and that I draw upon? In terms of my reading, writing, thinking – what are the problems I want to work on? what positions do I want to advocate for (or against)? what do I want to understand better? Think this through.

“Are you better off now than you were four years ago?”
