The weather outside was incentive enough to stay in bed today. It helped that it was Sunday and there were few demands. We binged watched reruns of Seinfeld – and it kept me thinking about how brilliantly the show lines are written.
Consistency, if I remember right, was Seinfeld’s mantra, dispensed to a young comedian Brad Isaac: “He said the way to be a better comic was to create better jokes and the way to create better jokes was to write every day.”
After what was a long day of driving to the big smoke and back, at 10pm, the last thing I want to do is to sit down and write. I know the chain of writing hasn’t been missed, and I was not going to break that today. I have an accountability buddy who is sending me a quote for my Spencerian writing every day, & I’m not going to let them down because I don’t feel like writing. And given I’m posting that here, I am not going to not write 🙂 (double negatives?!)
I’m grateful for the last week; the decentralisation discussion on Thursday has been a splendid highlight for me. I’m glad that more people are starting to lean in, contribute, speak up, and offer their perspectives in ways I have not seen. That is the best feeling ever.
