There is a day-to-day balancing of the list of things 'to do'
and the things 'to do' to be put on the list.
This tree was felled many years ago.
Being heavy, it has stayed in one place.
It still may be worth milling so it's going up the road to Paul.
The log was in the way of a project so moving it was suddenly bumped up the list.
It didn't take that long to do the job,
but it has taken years to get to it.
Perhaps the balance has been struck;
even if for one day.
