at this particular moment or day in time, what would they be?
In an effort to get organized, find out what I wanted to do next, given all the choices I have in front of me and wondering where to put all of my current energy, this is what I wrote:
I'm all about:
the heart shape
the moving picture
a break in the action
feelers extended out
making some money
ready for the next thing that grabs me
always wishing it were so
finding out for myself
it's not over yet
at 70 I want to be as excited about life as I am right now
still loving the one I am angry at
willing to try anything
cutting loose when nothing more can be done
asking myself what I think regularly
the electronic age
finding the solution
finishing the job
sleeping in whenever I can
meeting a new person
doing what's right
absorbing information, pictures, color
working hard if that's what needs to happen
bouncing ideas back and forth
working best when I am alone
I mean, what if with all the great choices in front of you, you still can't decide what to throw yourself into next? What then? Do you spin a bottle?
Do you write another list?
Do you just wait until someone asks you to play with them?
Sometimes I sign up for things that I think will be fun and then I just let the project sit until I get another offer. Then I have two projects. Then another offer, three projects. Then I get another and my stress level goes up and FINALLY when I can't put them off any longer I jump up and start working on all of them at once. THEN I know I am excited and there are deadlines and I'm writing lists and crossing things off and finishing something and starting something else and finishing two more.
I like a certain level of stress but when is it enough? When is it too much?
I was thinking about having a show and sale at my house soon. I just don't feeling like loading all this jewelry I have up onto etsy. That doesn't get me excited AT ALL. It would be SO MUCH WORK!
My kids get out of school next Friday and a full summer looms ahead with the responsibility of giving rides and jobs at the pool for the swim team. Also, we are all going with some friends of ours to Ashland, Oregon for a week to stay in a beautiful rented house and see some plays.
I like the idea of taking along a kit filled with pens and magazines, glue, drawing pencils, a diary-type book, a couple of my little printers, my camera and laptop and some paper to print on.
Maybe it's time to let everything I've done over the last 6 months to percolate. Oh yeah, I remember having the luxury of time for doing just that.
I'm going to tag some people. You can do this or not. I think it would be very interesting to know more on this topic.
What are you about right now?
Write down as many things as you can until you can't really think of any more.
Tag as many people as you want. Link back to the person who tagged you so they can see what you wrote. Write a comment so people can go see your list. No pressure. Let's see what this will bring. I am curious as always...
