    Oh! Oh! I am excited to participate in this! I had intended to work diligently on one of the three “in process” works this summer anyway. BEING intentional, I have found, is different from having intentions! I need to be managed, given deadlines, rewards or consequenses, or I daydream and drift into a murky wordless cove. This will help to remind me to keep paddling.
