To-Do / Doing: Continuing to catch up on reading, a process akin to the Joycean bird of hell who carried a single grain of sand each day from a great beach and the beach replenished itself every million eons and the bird kept going and the entire cycle was barely an instant in the grand scope of eternity. But funner.
