A Sisyphean Yarn

I can’t keep up.

Am learning, in retirement, to live with that.

Just asking myself each morning, “What one thing do I want to accomplish today?” And trying—trying—to ignore the Sisyphean Gordian Knot of projects built up over the years, with tangles of unanswered emails and social media threads.

If it ain’t on fire, and nobody’s dying, I’ll get to it when I can, or maybe not at all if something more joyful jumps to front of the queue.

Yesterday was layout and upload of Kickstarter bookmark #10 of 10: Bookmark the Stars! This morning was driving Jennifer to a doctor’s appointment. This afternoon I might walk the lab, more likely finally add D6xD6 Supers to DriveThruRPG. Though even more likely, end up feeling crappy from this morning’s flu shot and sleep the day away.

What’s on your agenda today?

    Thanks for the question, Nathanael! Bookmark the Stars! is now available in PDF form on DriveThruRPG. Click the title to go there. A print edition has also been submitted there for proofing.

    A quick question: is Bookmark the Stars on Kickstarter.com? or is there somewhere else I can find out more about it?

    This was absolutely spot-on to how I feel all too often. “If it ain’t on fire, and nobody’s dying, I’ll get to it when I can.” I am certainly not “retired” (and never can be, which is both good and bad) but daaang I get tired a lot more than I used to. Best of luck to you.
