Monday, June 21
I will spend the day at home alone and trying to write. I will find lots of useful things to do instead. Having said that, I will also do my quota of writing.
I have decided to stop for lunch and I venture out into the heat. I take a photograph of an eagle wing growing up the wall of the bicycle shed. As far as I know it has never grown here before. If it has then we have never cleared tthe weeds to make a space for it.
The thermometer on the terrace reads 34 degrees.
I will return indoors and make myself lunch, before chatting with Mark and continuing writing.
I have Zotero working for me now. I annotated a pdf of Paulo Friere’s Education for Critical Consciousness, based on notes I made in an analogue notebook while reading it. Zotfile collected all the annotations, marked them up for me, and dropped them into a text file where I can copy and paste them into the paper.
If only I had known about this years ago.
I console myself with the thought that I know about it now, and I will make good use of it for the four or five remaining papers and the book.
