Busy, by the standards of some retired guy living in central Minnesota.
Monday was a ‘busy’ day this week, too: thanks to an appointment at the eye clinic Monday morning. My task glasses’ frame needed fixing.
I needed an appointment to get in. They’re open, and dealing with pandemic realities by keeping the doors locked and having folks make appointments for routine and not-so-routine visits.
This afternoon, I plan to be at the Eucharistic Adoration chapel, for my weekly hour.
That makes today ‘busy,’ by my standards, since my weekly hour at the chapel bisects the afternoon.
Afternoons are when I usually get most of my writing done, and any interruption of routine can affect whether, how much, and how long I write. And whether what I write survives the next day’s review.
But I won’t get much of anything done if I keep writing this. So I’ll add my usual related-and-otherwise link list of other stuff I’ve written, and stop. For now.
BUT FIRST. I nearly forgot.
My current/today’s writing project is the second of a series of essays about Christopher Marlowe’s “The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus.”
Good grief, that’s a long title. No wonder most folks these days call it “Faustus.” Or, like me, possibly because I’m on the wordy side, “Dr. Faustus.”
My working title for the next ‘Faustus’ essay is “Dr. Faustus: World’s. Worst. Negotiator.”
Enough! Here’s that inevitable link list:
- “Sunshine, Snow, and Inauguration Day Looming”
(January 19, 2021)
- “Seeking Strange New Worlds, Life and Civilizations” (first of my other current series)
(January 16, 2021)
- “The Pope Wasn’t Arrested (or) I’m Not Making This Up”
(January 11, 2021)
- “Rereading Christopher Marlowe’s ‘Doctor Faustus’” (first in my ‘Faustus’ series)
(January 6, 2021)
- “Joy and Shadow, Free Will and Something Silly”
