In the last 8 months of my new job, I’ve become someone who gets up, gets coffee, and gets an hour or two of work in before the gym. (Don’t worry, I take that hour or two back with my gym break; I’m not working extra.)  If a project needs my brain, I have to do it early in the morning or my focus is shot… so I agree with Jane here.


A Day Is Vast
by Jane Hirshfield

A day is vast.
Until noon.
Then it’s over.

Yesterday’s pondwater
braided still wet in my hair.

I don’t know what time is.

You can’t ever find it.
But you can lose it.
