Mornings and Reportage

Another no-work day, yet I’m booked solid through 8pm. And glad to be, at that. Opportunities loom on the horizon in distant cities, closer to home obligations creak and demand attention, clients touch base. Such is the weekday in gusdom.

Harkening back to the winter break here, an image of the father seated in his morning ritual of breakfast news intake. The previous day’s happenings condensed into columns, ripe for selective reading. A competition of headlines vying for the reader’s eyes.

I’ll buy a paper maybe once a week and then spend the next five breakfasts working my way through it. Fascinating stuff is buried deep within the divisions of news, too much to be consumed in any given day. Given my current academic pursuits I find myself entrenched in the business sections, but alas the NYTimes’ “Modern Love” column always gets at my sweet spot.

To tomorrow’s breakfast.
