I feel sorry for the person who can't get genuinely excited about his work. Not only will he never be satisfied, but he will never achieve anything worthwhile.~ Walter Chrysler

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How was your first day back to work?
JOE: Okay once I got there. I lost a filling and had to detour to my dentist's office to be repaired.
CALLIOPE: And then?
JOE: I realized that between my psychology practice and writing, I have not had a regular schedule in the past twenty years.
CALLIOPE: That will take a little adjustment.
JOE: Fortunately I am working in a very flexible environment.
CALLIOPE: What did you do all day.
JOE: After becoming acclimated, I spent most of the day updating a website with current information. Fortunately I was well equipped for the task.
CALLIOPE: What's next?
JOE: I have some work to do on archiving articles about GOART from local publications.
CALLIOPE: And then what?
JOE: New adventures. I'm going to work prepared for anything. I enjoy not being responsible for everything for a change.
CALLIOPE: Good luck.
JOE: Thanks. I'm already feeling at home. Talk with you tomorrow.

JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How are you today?
JOE: Better.
CALLIOPE: On what account?
JOE: Whatever was wrong with my computer isn't any more.
CALLIOPE: What was the problem?
JOE: I wish I knew. I don't even have a guess.
CALLIOPE: How did you fix it then?
JOE: I kept cleaning it and deleting everything I didn't need until it was back to normal.
CALLIOPE: That's a relief but also a mystery.
JOE: Right on both counts. Now back to work.
CALLIOPE: Which is?
JOE: Finishing my announcements for Conversations with Calliope- the book.
CALLIOPE: Anything else?
JOE: I have a new idea which I'll tell you about tomorrow.
