Taught two ninety-minute classes in back-to-back at my daughter's school. It was the Macbeth residency, a little banquet scene, some stage combat. I was entirely wrecked after and just couldn't move for about an hour.
It's cold. I'm tired. The national scene is demoralizing. Time for a run.

Today is also the day that winter got me. It's cold. I'm cold. And its not even that cold. But I feel it, deeply. It leaves me listless and uninspired.
It was also one year ago today that I last saw my father alive, that has been weighing on me, too.
Pavement: dusty with snow & ice
From enervating to energizing. Still not one hundred percent, but at least I can say I ran, and it was good. At least I am no longer cold. What would I do without it? Seriously, it's a little frightening.
