I Need Elves or Something

I just can’t get motivated.  I don’t want to do anything beyond read, watch tv, or go to the movies.  I don’t want to work.  But I’ve got some substantial items on my to-do list.  Oh, and now Buddy is crying.  What does he want?  Hey dude.  Okay, focus.  Pick one thing, just one thing.  Okay, I just picked two.  They are the things that are the most important to accomplish but, not surprisingly, they are the things I would most like to avoid.

This is a sadly neglected mosaic at the Chambers Street subway stop.  Once it was bright and shiny and new.  The pride and joy of whoever made it.
