(no subject)

slept in 'til 4am today. Sybarite.

Didn't get everything done, yesterday, so it's just as well. Still need to put bikes away, do three paperwork tasks, pack my personal suitcase, pack food, pack the car, get it serviced, and wash it. Then hit the road. Probably on the road by ten AM, even so. That'll put us in Flagstaff around sixish.

Yesterday worked fine 'til I took Gabe swimming. After that, I was weary, which is not the same as being tired. Sat around a lot staring into space, then eventually gave up and went to bed. I don't like weariness.

In part the weariness came from reading an article on www.progressive.org about prison abuse. It read too much like my ex-marriage. And I still don't have a good explicit algorythm for responding to it. I think I know how to build one, but part of how my brain works *right now* is that in order to think such things I need to talk 'em out, verbally, with a sympathetic audience. When in brainstorm mode, though, I don't think enough about presentation to make sure I keep my audience with me -- sometimes I do, but it's not a sure thing. I need to figure out what to do about this. Suggestions?

While you think about that, I'll go be productive and pack a cooler and a lunchbox.
