Tonight I wrote about free music, counseled clients at the Salvation Army legal clinic, and puzzled out ways to draw unique stickfigures for an animation. I thought today that fingerpaints never let one down, after a thoughtful weblogger pointed out that in her view lipstick was similarly above reproach. I exchanged views via twitter with a hip Dutch remixer, and read a book "Against Fate" I found fascinating. I looked up the address for the Knights of Columbus hall in Texarkana at which we are to reunite with relatives on Sunday. I watched house sparrows feed at the feeder outside my office window. I had turkey at Boston Market for dinner. I arise tomorrow for a whirlwind trip to Austin. I need to write more melodies. I need to stop and think. I need to put my thoughts into action.
