There is a wonderful daily email I look forward to: AWAD by Anu Garg.
Today’s word is superbious. http://www.wordsmith.org/words/superbious.html
Certainly at least one person comes to my mind as being proud and insolent, But what really stuck with me today, was Anu’s Thought for Today: “I don’t need more time. What I need is a deadline.” Duke Ellington, jazz pianist, composer and conductor (29 April 1899-1974).
How true this rings now days. We’re sheltering in place and might think we have all the time in the world to git-er-dun, but if we really want to get it done, sometimes there is nothing quite like a deadline to bring the project into focus. These endless days of one after the other are all becoming some day.
I really need to be mindful of not letting too much time melt away in these days of self quarantine.
