We only have a certain amount of time available in which to achieve an aim. A completed aim is a process and, as with any process, comprises several stages. Each stage is allotted a period of time, within which that stage must necessarily be reached. If we fail to reach the required stage within the allotted period, the process goes off-course; it will not complete. If the aim is our life aim, the result is a tragedy.

New reading of the morning….
Peter Ackroyd’s London: A Biography (Chatto & Windus 2000)
David & Alex left for Real World at 08.40. Among their work is checking an eventually-returned tape of Fripp & Eno from EMI. We are not sure what’s on it.
My own work for the morning: sleevenotes for At The End Of Time.
14.15 Alone in the office & e-frenzying.
18.46 From the reply to a Crafty…
better you work now, than wait. when we reach 56, the outer aspects of our nature begin to weaken their hold over us. this is an opportunity to respond more to what is higher in us. but, if we have not done the work while we are younger, we are unable to respond to this opportunity. this is appalling, it is tragic.
so i congratulate you on your efforts & encourage you to continue. good work is what is possible for us + 10%, in a sustained fashion. our 100% may not seem as much as someone else’s 100% - but it is! we do what we are able to do, then + 10%, and keep going.
20.56 In front of the computer, with a couple of meal breaks, for almost 12 hours now.
22.25 All 8.8 hours, of Slow Music on the West Coast May 5-13th. 2006, are now loading into i-Pod for listening, en route to being DGM Live downloadable.
And 13.5 hours in front of the computer today is too much; but the inbox down to 1 & this is a considerable achievement.
