Awake at 4 am today, thinking about Cawthra Park. Maybe the rain woke me up. Good thing I got Toad's cat shelter box out last night. Nice to think of him warm and dry, or at least dry last night.

Is this early morning wakefulness a sign of depression, or just the stress of my job getting to me? How do I know in my own head when I have clinical depression or I'm just anxious and sad about the state of the world?

At least in my own space it will help to complete or delete some projects. Looking at them all is making me anxious.

Procrastination and perfection

I've got a new google list on my home page of things to do. It will only list seven items at a time - a serious limitation! But I've realized (again) that my procrastination and inability to complete projects leads to clutter in my space. And probably in my head too.

So now I want to complete just one item, or at least work on one item from the list every day. Tonight I managed to hang the pictures in my living room. I had to let of of the requirement to have perfect balance and the 'correct' lay out, and just get them up on the wall the best that I could. I've got a Hang & Level from Canadian Tire that helped position them, and I did the rough arrangement on the floor. It's not bad, and it's complete except for one picture which may go in the hall or bedroom instead.

Good for me.

Tired this evening. Tried to find moth traps - out of stock, so wasted trip. I should be able to walk a couple of extra blocks without feeling so beat. Had to lie down at 6 pm for half an hour. Lack of sleep or is this beginning of the fall seasonal affective disorder?

Last night I was watching the BBC channel, some show about the global economy. A man who was obviously some British economic expert solemnly stated that the Chinese middle class have to start consuming more to make up for the Americans who aren't buying.And he was serious.The economic growth forever guys have no thought for the finite amount of product that this planet can produce. Let alone where do we dispose of it all once it's broken or out of fashion. To them it's all about the dollars, bottom line, GDP must go up.A billion Chinese using the earth's resources at the same rate as Americans is short term thinking at it's worst.
