Hard to plan the day

Daybreak

E.B. White, in a 1969 interview with Israel Shenker:

 

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem.

But every morning I awake torn between the desire to save the world and an inclination to savor it.

This makes it hard to plan the day!

About Jim

Night sky watcher; a mobile bit of earth's body. One foot lingering in Lower Cañoncito's piñon-juniper foothills at the southern tip of the Rockies, the edge of the Great Plains stretching away from the mouth of our little valley a couple miles downstream. The other foot re-rooting into the Land of the White Pines, home of my blood and bones, amidst the coastal plain and glacial hills and ponds of southern Maine, between the North Atlantic and the bones of the ancient Appalachian Mountains.
