Today I revised chapter two for 175 minutes (I work in 25 min segments called poms). I managed to cut 524 words. This is very slow work. However, the story, the argument and the analysis are improved in the end.
When I left my office, I heard on NPR Nelson Mandela has died. This evening I heard Nashville in Harmony sing. The work of mercy and justice goes on in great and small ways around me, giving me perspective on the work I do and words I say. This prayer closes my day: Oh, God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small.
