Note to my autumnal self

Enough introspection.

You have no money to throw at the problem. You still haven't a clue how you're both going to keep on top of things after September, be it this or the next.

There are simply too many ifs, ors and buts. You'd (still) rather just ignore the small-if-significant iceberg that's looming ever larger on the horizon.

But you know what? That's fine.

At home you've been the happiest you've ever been in your adult life. You should require no reminding of the reasons for this. You've never loved your work so much. Your long-term friendships remain mostly intact.

Life is very, very good. Step back and look at the big picture. You'll muddle through, and you should be thanking your winter self for this helpful missive.

The devils lurk in too much detail. So shut up, look up, and you might just perk up.

Note to self: Shut up, man. You just made yourself cringe.
