A musician’s day

Erik Satie

An artist must regulate his life. Here is my precise daily schedule. I rise at 7:18, am inspired from 10:30 to 11:47. I lunch at 12:11 and leave the table at 12:14. A healthy horseback ride on my property from 1:19 to 2:35. Another round of inspiration from 3:12 to 4:07. From 5:00 to 6:47 various occupations (fencing, reflection, immobility, visits, contemplation, dexterity, swimming, etc.). Dinner is served at 7:16 and finished at 7:20. Afterwards from 8:09 to 9:59 symphonic readings out loud. I got to bed regularly at 10:37. Once a week I wake up at 3:14 a.m. (Tuesdays).
