The Report

I spent part of the weekend working on a report. That means:

  • Jotting down related thoughts in a journal while at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Writing points in the margin of a newspaper.
  • Writing on note cards.
  • Typing a rough draft.
  • Thinking about changing the format of that draft.
  • Sitting quietly to ponder that change.
  • Simplifying the concepts.
  • Eating a sliver of chocolate cake.
  • Writing a second draft.
The final draft awaits. 

It will require coffee.
