Default First Day with Big Project ~ Live!

Went well. I think they learned a few things and I did as well. Really intense, I guess because today I am tired.

Focused on next week and getting inspired for how to get this done. A feeling I didn't fully have when we started off on Tuesday.

Tomorrow, a train and 2 buses to go 10 miles with hopes of a ride back to where we're getting free catered meals 3 x a week. Today was fun as they had run out of takeout containers and we have a couple we keep in our trunk. My partner missed her improv "yes and" moment and questioned me about them being in the car when I said we had some. Oh well, you can lead people to an improv moment but you can't make them think.

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

I'm not sure what your improv moment was, but I had an improv weekend years ago, and it was great fun.
I'm not sure if I was sick or not, but I stayed low for a few days anyway. COVID test negative. I'm having a lot of lazies lately. I found out that I do have an excuse for it. My lung capacity is a bit over half what it should be.

Meanwhile, I have a lot of "should do" things to do. I'll write a list here and see if it helps.

Change sheets.

email to Lois

hedge clippers

email sookum Joe's friendship centre

find out how to spell sookum Joe

edit Will search for info on Johanna

That's it for me for now.

Good stuff for you.

Default Yes and

An improv moment is when you get to perform "yes and" in real life. We walk up the steps of this cool home-made-gallery to get free "plates" they are sponsoring from terrific chefs. On Wed. they were out of takeout containers.

Me: Oh, we have some.
Her: We have take out container with us? In the trunk?
[thus, a missed improv moment—the presupposition is that I know there are some in the trunk that she doesn't know about, apparently, though they've been there for months.]

Alternative take:
Me: Oh, we have some.
Her: Yes, please go get them. Don't get my grandmother's Corning; don't want to risk tripping and dropping them."


May you get traction on your list.

R

Sounds yummy. I hope you were able to take the goodies home. I'm not sure what to say about the Corning ware. It seems that the risk of dropping it is slim. "Don't have a nice trip." seems to cover it.

First three items on my list completed. Yay! Onward!

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

As of two minutes ago, I completed everything on my to-do list. Yay! I contacted the Sookum Jim Friendship Centre; I'm scared that they won't answer me, or even worse, that they'll answer me and say that what I wrote is all wrong and disrespectful. (Biting nails.) But wouldn't it be cool if it worked?

Default Do what you must

Hi Ms. D, yeah, S. Joe's can go any of several ways. You did what you needed to do, and now it's their turn.

About a year ago I realized Dee Hock, the genius behind negotiating the VISA credit card system, was in his 90s. If was to have a conversation with him I'd better get on the handle.

I love his work, so I re-read his book and got both of his books of aphorisms and skimmed those. I looked at interviews and reviewed the binder I got from taking a workshop based on his thoughts about organizations. I read everything on his blog.

When I felt ready I found his email and invited him to answer a few questions via email in 3 rounds.

He responded! Yes.

So I sent my first questions, which he didn't really answer. I adjusted my questions and sent a new message, and he dodged again essentially the same way he's dismissed my first questions.

I'd suggested 3 rounds, but I called it after my disappointing first 2.

I tried and have no regrets.

So, do what you must.

Interesting! Disappointing that Dee Hock gave you a pat answer. Still, given that he/she is a marketing genius . . .

An internet friend typed that she'd take a look at my work that has to do with a First Nations healer. Yay! And she has a friend who worked with First Nations in the Yukon. Double Yay!!

Default Keep a Going

HI Ms. D, my failed outreach to Mr Hock felt annoying for a a couple of days and then I turned to other matters. So it goes.

At a tween space—a bit of time before my last session with my client. Do I keep working or accept a few days away for it? Turns out, I've cashed out those days. Happened to come across The Soul of a New Machine by Tracy Kidder and as I'd thought of it a few days ago I took it out of one of those little free libraries. Spent to day racing through it (I'd read it maybe 35 years ago). Turns our Mr Kidder and the hero of the book, Tom West, attended the same school I did, Amherst College.

Tomorrow is promised to be a terrific day, weatherwise, so I'm taking the ferry to Bainbridge Island to walk about, visit the museum, & get some ice cream. Those are my goals.

If I wake up eager to dash off some notes for work, I guess I'll have let my dash off some notes.

All will be revealed in time, R.
