Today I do a whole bunch of notes (that's the task from 10:00 to noon), then read Gates's "Race", Writing, and Difference. I'm basically going chronologically through my list, reading the titles I hadn't hit in my earlier scattershot approach -- it's somehow much more motivating, doing it in order. Maybe because it gives me a clearer sense of accomplishment -- I can glance at the list and see how far I've gotten, how much I'm finished with. This was my original plan for doing this reading; I wish I'd stuck with it. Ah well.
60 degrees right now, heading for a high of 83, and 82 tomorrow. Oof! Back down to highs of 60ish after that, though.
