Multi-tasking in slow motion

Today I felt like I was multi-tasking in slow motion. I cut vegetables while packing suitcases. Did the laundry, 3 loads, while reading. Constructed some sculptural drawings while writing. I watched LOST while writing some more (this blog entry). Walked and made mental lists of paper sizes for a print edition. I played with Grant, making sand castles together, and brushed sand that some little brat kept putting in my hair while thinking about what Hannah Arendt wrote about totalitarianism.

I reviewed the work of David B. Milne while folding the laundry and did some more packing. I got it all into the car and headed to Ohio, through the snow, and reflected on my managed life.
