A few thoughts

  1. Planning is just planning. It isn’t doing. It can be weirdly easy to mix this up.
  2. Spring!
  3. The third book of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, the Hays translation, is really worthwhile.
  4. It’s a lot easier to consider sunk costs sunk intellectually than emotionally.
  5. Any house purchase or remodel will likely have lots of sunk costs.

Noticed this inset into the sidewalk outside the office this morning. Not sure how I missed it before, but also impressed at how apt the quote still seems.

Clearly my family has been thinking about the effect of money on society for a long, long time. At least I come by it honestly.

On movement


The paths we take though a city are laid out in asphalt and stone
in side-yard fences 
in restaurants and convenience stores known and unknown. 

I drove down the freeway today, took the less-than-predictable exit,
one later than I'd planned - 
paused in front of a neon land laid out 
on the vertical white walls of the nearest museum. It 
cast a red glow like the firelight of the video installation 
in the next room over. 

When will I pass this way again?
