Hard to plan

I just encountered the following quote in someone's e-signature:

"Every morning I awake torn between a desire to save the world and an
inclination to savor it. This makes it hard to plan the day." - E.B. White

Does anyone else relate? (On optimistic days, anyway...) Now that the rainy fall weather is upon us, should we add the inclination to stay in bed with hot chocolate and mystery novels?

And then there are the non-optimistic days when there is nothing to plan... you just pull the covers over your head and go back to sleep.

And then there are the days when you try to save it but everyone around you seems to be destroying everything you have just saved. But then there are the days when as you savor you actually save. Not just in the sense that when you savor you are saving a memory, but in the sense that when one savors they, by nature of savoring, sit back and actually see what is around them; which makes them recognize when something may actually need to be saved.
