Rhythms and revisiting

Apparently I'm doing some sort of coffee shop tour, if the past couple of mornings are any indication. Caffe Vita isn't an unusual spot for me, since it's just around the corner from my office. Journalling again in these old haunts is the real change, I suppose.

There've been a few pieces of my daily rhythms that have changed in the past week. Don't think any of them individually or in combination constitutes a "magic bullet" that has me back in a writing groove, but it might be worth documenting as many as I can note just to have a look:
  • Deciding that I want to write
  • Removing regular physical comic book buying to reassess where that best fits in our space, budget, and time
  • Trying to do as much home computing as possible on my iPad during the workweek (only using my MacBook Pro when specifically necessary)
  • Limiting work email from home during the workweek
  • Carrying less stuff home and back during the workweek—schlepping a big, full pack each day was tiring and mostly unnecessary
  • Getting a ZaggFolio Keyboard Case so that I don't have to carry a separate external keyboard if I want to type at greater length on my iPad
  • Getting and keeping more current with social networks, email, etc., while releasing without regret whatever doesn't fit
I'm sure I'll remember other stuff later, too. However the change originated, it's been nice.
