Much ado & to do



Stare at the clouds
Eat the air
Watch the sky change colours
Watch your phone charge

Maybe take a selfie

Read some pithy wisdom

Repeat
Forget the sky
Forget the moon
Suddenly remember them
Wash the dishes
Clean out the fridge
Drink water
Get some air
Caffeine
Run away
Come back again
Accept the non-apology
Reject it again
Work until you can’t anymore
Take a break until you can’t anymore
Put on earrings
Take them off
Put on necklaces
Take them off
Write things
Lose the things you’ve written
Rewrites
Miscellaneous procrastinated tasks
Assessments
Assess the assessments
