It's kind of true, a blog entry sometimes feels like not much more than a note to self. But there's also the feeling that you want to be working every day and you want some of the work to be done in words. No telling what it adds up to, and maybe there should be more of an effort to shape the dailies into something, but it's nice to have faith in the work. Or hope. We all need something we can lean on.
