I’m playing my last game of chess.  Well, probably not the last time I make a chess move, but my last serious game using opening books, studying the ending, etc.  This time … I really think I can do it!

Having concrete substitutes helps.  Music is more beautiful.  Dancers are much happier.  And words … exercise my brain in a gentler yet equally satisfying way.

They should have AA for chess players.

    Oops, did I not mention that? Well, it’s because … there’s so much I want to do with my life. Learn to play an instrument (or three) competently, and write well and consistently enough to get published. I could happily spend several hours every day on EACH of those. They’re more social, too – well, music is.

    24 hours ain’t enough.
