Hammocks

July 5, 2021

All creative work brings an equivalent amount of annoying, non-creative work.  Today was one of those days that quickly got hi-jacked by data entry.  It involved a lot of file transferring, backing up, and uploading.  Most of the day felt like I needed to hurry up and wait.  

This seemed like a good opportunity to do some reading.  You can’t be a good writer (or a songwriter), if  you don’t read.  I decided that in between the tedious clicks of the enter key, I would sink into the hammock with a book.  

In case you are unaware, there is an unpublished law of physics regarding hammocks. It is impossible to relax alone in a hammock, if there is a child within shouting distance.  I was quiet.  I was borderline sneaky.  They showed up every time.  

I didn’t do any reading.  We fought sharks. We were on a pirate ship.  We played the lava game.  We watched a bird and a helicopter.  We won the hammock Grand Prix.  I didn’t do any reading but this was better.
