What we deserve, what we need

As I just commented back to the hugely talented artist who took the photo I artified for my masthead:
If [yesterday] was "a day off," it was only from blogging, alas. I worked most of the day and fairly late into the evening on an index for a book about to go to the printer. If my muse was trying to deliver something, I was too tired to hear her tapping. I went to bed bleary and dull, past all ability to index another term or to revisit yesterday's post. And I'm not sure I'm that much recovered this morning. I may "deserve" a day off, but I think I need a week of them—from indexing if not from blogging!
Perhaps I can finish the index today and be receptive to a tap from "MuseEx" by even-time.

..."God willing."

  1. All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy. And,in my case the wife pissed off. You need to listen to that voice that says rest.

  2. I do believe you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You will get that time off you need when the task is finally finished.

    I keep changing my photo, is case you wondered, just to make folks think someone new has dropped by (grin)
