I’ve been falling way behind in my posts. I’ve been falling way behind in everything. I’m falling behind.

Two travelers were walking along the shore at low tide when they saw an oyster lying there. They both reached for it at the same time, the first pushed away the other, and the two raised their staves and began to fight. An old man came along and asked why they were fighting, and when they told him, all three decided that he would listen to their arguments and act as judge.
While each traveler was arguing their case, the old man slowly picked up the oyster and opened it with his knife. When the travelers were finished, the old man solemnly took out and ate the oyster meat. He then handed each traveler a shell. “This judge,” he began, “Awards you each a shell. The oyster will cover the court fee.
I’ve gotten a little behind on posting
One thing I like about lockdown is that it’s given me a lot of time to think. Reflection is key, and I’ve been spending too much time taking in input without processing it. That’s like scarfing your food without chewing
I’ve had a surprising amount of work to do for someone that had their hours cut by 66%. But I’m essential. I’m lucky that I can work from home, and I got to create my own curriculum.
I don’t think I’m going to do the body count on every post. It’s too much research in the morning, and I’m too busy.
I have just felt so wiped out that I’ve forgotten to post. Sorry.
If you’re wondering why I’m taking pictures of it in my journal, it’s because transcribing is exhausting.
