Ebb and Flow

Are you ever sitting at your desk at work, and suddenly you remember something you wanted to check online -- something you've been looking forward to checking out even though it's slipped your mind all day? It could be anything -- an email from a friend you haven't talked to in a long time, some pictures a friend posted on Facebook of your weekend in Boise -- then something interrupts you with work and a few minutes later you can't remember what you were excited to look up. Happens to me all the time. Then I'll go on a search for what could have gotten me excited. Maybe it was an article in The Times, or maybe I was supposed to check the surfboard classifieds. Then I finally remember what I was looking forward to and my original level of excitement seems disproportionate to whatever I wanted to check. Then I begin to wonder if that's really what I was looking forward to. It's a vicious cycle.
