Saturday, November 17 - Travel Prep

1) Up a whisper before 6, coffee and a short devotional (a chapter of Joshua, an aphorism from The Art of Worldly Wisdom, and the daily life habits of Carson McCullers from How Artists Work) before finishing a load of laundry, almost completing packing, cooking and consuming breakfast, and washing a sinkful of dishes - almost everything with Pod Save America in the background.

2) I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S ALMOST THANKSGIVING!

3) In the words of Amber Waves, “Too many things, too many things, too many things, too many things . . . “ And I just remembered I have to stop on the way to the airport to run an important errand. D’oh!
