When will I feel normal again?

After work, after running errands, then taking care of the cats, it’s practically time to go to bed. I still have half a book to fact check, and illustrations to pick out, and Echo to run. How am I ever going to manage and not feel like the Alice in Wonderland quote, “My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.”??

Someone decorated a tree in front of their building with robins.

I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.

  1. Your headline made this song pop into my head!

    It’s not really on point but you could substitute your own lyrics. Like this fun labour of love:

    Normal will resume in its own good time, I think. I know things feel they are all up in a heaval now. 😉

    As for those birds, they look more like Cardinals to me. Robins are only orange on the breast and Cardinals are red all over. Which always makes me think of the series of kid riddles/jokes: what’s black and white and red all over? [multiple answers ensue]
