What do I and dry breeches have in common?
Monday, September 4th, 2023

“You can’t catch trout with dry breeches.” ~ Anonymous

I’ve marked this week on my calendar as “Hell Week.” That’s because I have so many mountains to climb by Friday. I didn’t get good rest last night because I drank coffee after noon and was up until 4 AM; however, I can’t let that stop me. I’ll take a nap sometime today—with a timer (because I can’t rest too long or I’ll feel sluggish)—but that will have to do. I’m home after my long weekend with my sister and fellow writers. Now, I have to do the work!

So, back to that obscure quote… Today, it means I have to wade into the river, regardless of the discomfort.

I need to play some inspirational music to get my butt into gear. Any suggestions?

    If you need chilling out music, you can’t beat Christopher Cross’ Sailing. If you need something to rev you up, Rick James’ Super Freak is always my go to.

    Why not just put on some sleep sounds–storms, rain, waves–soothing stuff to relax the soul so the mind can work?

    I really like OneRepublic, particularly Love Runs Out.
    I also like Imagine Dragons, and Bastille. That’s what’s motivating me right now.

    Not sure if it’ll let me share a youtube link for Love Runs Out, but here goes:

    Anything by Jimmy Buffet always gets me moving. Boats, Beaches, Bars, and Ballads is one of the best collections of his music.
