1) creation, 4) housekeeping

  • (last week) chapter 11 of ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... nearly done in a 5 day span when the toil of laying down rows spun back to the structural patterning and dense meaning to placement of images, alignments, and material used.  these are the ideal momentum-filled hours each night, staying just ahead of the associations, allowing the pages and rows to suggest adjacent artifacts.  switching out the quote for the chapter as now that book 1 and book 2 of ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... are combined into one book, 400 pages, chapter 11 is crucial to set up the next 10 chapters, the arc of 400 or so pages.  used the long excerpt from The End of Faith by Sam Harris.  
  • backing up all work, including sound files to external hard drive and then work computer.  decision to let Gibson guitar go as paying the $520 to retrieve it from pawn exasperates the frustration of having floated the loan for 4 or 5 months at $40 each time.  simply too much money to reacquire - I can buy all of the boys' christmas presents for less - the weighing out immediately make the decision.
