Tired and Uninspired

It’s a couple hours past when most people consider themselves to be “off duty” for the day. I’m sitting at the dining room table with my partner tackling a time-sensitive project. As the title suggests, I’m feeling tired and uninspired. At least as far as writing a blog post goes. I got up and out of the house early this morning to do my duty as a citizen. I went to the county courthouse to be available to be on a jury.

It’s tempting to write about the people I saw and the experience I had. Voir dire is a far more participatory process than it was the first time I was ever called. Some day, there could be a really interesting essay or character sketch that bubbles up out of this. But tonight, I’m weary and needing to finish dealing with other obligations. So, ta ta for now.
