I got up before 7:00 this morning and I worked all day, straight through, until 10:30 pm this evening. Without a break. Not even a lunchbreak.
By the time I was done, my hands were trembling.
Intense, lengthy work sessions like this always have a strange, paradoxical effect on me. On the one hand, I feel wonderful and triumphant. At the very same time, and in the very same bones, I feel equally frustrated that this is how we spend our lives.
