In keeping with my New Year's resolution to write more, just a quick note today about a passage I found Monday night.  Seems especially fitting right now for my condition.

We must remember three things.  Number one and first in importance, we must have as much fun as we can with what we have.  Number two, we must eat as well as we can, because if we don't, we won't have the health and strength to have as much fun as we might.  Number three, and third and last in importance, we must keep the house reasonably in order, wash dishes and such things.  But we will not let the last interfere with the other two. 
John Steinbeck, Log from the Sea of Cortez, 1951
