I sit in the middle of this, figuring out where to start in getting organized again. This is a monthly ritual, it seems - run like heck to stay just one step ahead as the crash of all this activity hangs imminently in the balance of what can practically fit in the inbox. Then, right before IT turns off the email and the inbox falls over, I catch it all and file it away. Until the next month at least.
I'll thank Coleridge for the send-off: "Papers, paper everywhere, cause all inboxes to overpile; papers, papers everywhere, nor any a minute to file"
