This be the day

A more attractive man would have had another life
My life is as simple as I can make it. Work all day, cook, eat, wash up, telephone, hack writing, drink, television in the evenings. I almost never go out. I suppose everyone tries to ignore the passing of time—some people by doing a lot, being in California one year and Japan the next. Or there’s my way—making every day and every year exactly the same. Probably neither works.
Philip Larkin, here
The above is from a good site that pulls quotes on the daily routines of writers and artists.
