There. Poem #100 of the sequence. I've been feeling the sequence lag after I hit the 70's. Which definitely means I need to work hard on the later pieces. We'll see what happens. What I know: I need a secondary and possibly a tertiary sequence to frame and contextualize what's happening.

Getting series fatigue, which means my interest in a project is coming to a close. Next comes organization and revision, I think. Which is good. Means I can get on with my life. . .

I got new shelves! So that's on my mind. My wife is out of town, so I've been solo-parenting for the past few days, which is also why I'm not feeling overly inspired. "Daddy Brain" has been very insistent of late.

I had to drag myself to the desk today. I totally didn't want to write. But there. Now I feel virtuous.

Continuing with a sequence I started in 2011. I'm going for #100 and then I'll close it up and switch to something else.
