ideas for Valerie's birthday





Accomplished yesterday's  grocery tasks but, basically, nothing further.

Am reminded of old AA adage: "not a good idea for an alcoholic to work as a bartender." As a former U.S. History teacher, the massive daily news is driving me into procrastination, leading to lack of productivity.  No such thing as a slow news day this yr.  As a visual person, a couple of short daily audio capsules are something I will really have to work at being able to accept. Open to a book-ending.

solidarity, re news ...

solidarity AnnD, yes, I can relate to daily news being an ever-present temptation to dive in ... I'm not trying to hide away or ignore it all, but it's hard for me, in particular, to engage with it in a productive and non-addictive, non-distracting rabbit-hole-y kind of way. 

best of luck.  

and thanks for sharing that connection / insight with the AA adage ... I think that is very good fodder for contemplation.

if you are interested, and no pressure of course, there is the chatbox for bookending, as well as 5 daily Zoom mini-meeting / bookending calls that a few of us do; there is more information about them here:

Appreciate your reply.

I will participate tomorrow.
