Working makes me so sleepy. Or is it the off-grey sky and lulling hum of intermittent traffic on the street below, with a gentle background of light classical music in the living room? Am I sleeping enough? Nah. Most likely it is the lousy writing I am translating. How many of these crummy articles have I come across in my career? Written by hacks to fill space in a magazine nobody will read. But I still care as much now as I did decades ago and although tempted sometimes, refuse to let "garbage in, garbage out" be my guide.
