If it keeps on rainin' levee's goin' to break
When the levee breaks I'll have no place to stay.

I did 63 days in a row of #FindtheHour. It was a good run, and I'm closing in on having some great creative stuff in my back pocket.
But then the wheels came off. It started as all things start, innocently. I stayed up late one night. Then the next morning I got a late start, then work started to stack up, then I felt tired, then I started making excuses, then...
It's amazing how quickly the reptile known as Resistance takes hold. How quickly it finds an opening to whisper sweet nothings into your ear. "Relax," it says. "Why go to all the trouble?"
I folded. But not just for one day.
Not just for two days.
For three days I did nothing, proving Newton right again when he said a body laying down watching Game of Thrones remains laying down.
Finally, I bitch slapped myself, got out of bed, and hit refresh.
That's the answer. Sharpen the axe and begin chopping again.
