Somehow I must muster enough energy to plow through the mail, client phone calls, and the fires guaranteed to suck the life right out of me. All this is dependent upon my ability to crawl through the front door. I make my way to the coffee machine, albeit at the pace of “snail,” and make that first glorious cup of Joe.
