Or The Long Dark Tea-Time of God Rest the Soul of Douglas Adams

As I sit here, sipping my tea, basking in the waxing and waning sun streaming through my incredibly dirty picture window, knowing full well it is still only 40 degrees outside on the way to a supposed high of 58, I did not set out to write a run-on sentence, but sometimes it happens.

Usually I am the less organized, least structured, most easily distracted – squirrel! – Lisa of the bunch. But there is a method to my squirreliness, sometimes. Right now it takes the form of my attempts to reach out to others, connect with the writing community, and break the cycle of “if you don’t read and respond to my blog I will cry but I am too busy to read or respond to yours.”
To each of us is given the same 24 hours in a day and it is my mid-month resolution to waste them wisely. Help me to help you to help me become a better citizen with suggestions where to start.
