What we ask for
24 April 2006
I woke up this morning — uh, afternoon — to an email asking if I could bring forward my lecture from next week to tomorrow, and the film screening for the lecture from Friday morning (the one I was dreading) to this evening.
Fantastic. I can’t imagine anything better to break my current inertia. Much as I carp about routines and anxiety, I get a real buzz from moments of unpredictability, as they often signal changes in direction that I find re-energizing. Of course, I might carp about too many changes then. But this one is minor. And certainly welcome.
