The Deadline

Here’s a thing about deadlines: they work, if you let them. I’d thought perhaps that I’d just lay down for a minute and then a six hour nap ensued, and from an unexpected but welcome darkness I stumbled back into things, willing to miss a day after what had been the high holiday and found I had two minutes to spare. So there were limits to the deadlines, and perhaps there had been two lessons from the day; it doesn’t have to be perfect, and do things sooner.
