The list against forgetfulness

[I set the alarm for seven minutes from now and wrote …]

There is a list of everything I want to do and have been asked to do and should be doing and could be doing and would be doing if I wasn’t doing this.

The list is long and not written down, so from time to time I forget what’s on the list until I’m asked how something is going and I have to confess I forgot to do it.

I could write it all down, but what if I happen to forget something and eventually have to admit I forgot even to write it down?

The knots we tie ourselves into are complex and beautiful and horrifying and wonderful.

[… and then the dog started barking and what do you know the alarm went off.]
