Today is a new day. Let’s conquer the world. Chase your dreams. O Captain, my Captain. Carpe Diem.
I’m too depressed to write anything of worth. I have to go to the pharmacy and pick something up but instead I’m sitting on the floor. I lack the ompf to get up. To write. To speak.
I have a list…. It isn’t very long. Just steps. Wash off the lid. Put the box under the bed, and those boxes, put the tree in the room. Move the table, move the chair. But first…. Wash off the lid.
Or this list: fold the clothes, move the clothes, pick up the living room, wash the dishes, sweep the floor. But first…Fold the clothes.
Or … Just bundle up in the chair and sip coffee while you mentally calculate all the energy you don’t have to do the things that need to be done.
I should just get up.
