It’s Monday, from my place in the world, only a little over and hour left in the day before we roll head first into Tuesday. I love the starts of new weeks because it gives me the chance to have somewhat of a “redo” from the prior week.
I know, I know, some of you are probably thinking, what has been the hold up? Truth is, I was majorly derailed and even with my best efforts I have struggled to get back on track. (I have eluded to this previously.) A family member has had to go under the knife somewhere around 6 times since April. It has meant loads of attention given to them, (and let me add delightedly) as other family members worked together, rearranging matters in our lives to be a help.
Messiah Yeshua be praised, they are on the fast track to a glorious recovery and testimony! WOOT!
But now by the grace of God, the storm is passing over and there is much less pressure to try and secure time. Part of me feels like this is a problem because with the lack of pressure comes the faulty belief that you have allllll the time in the world.
What has this meant for me? This has meant I have found myself anchored in an enjoyable time suck of UNO!
Yes, that’s right. The game of UNO. I downloaded an app on my tablet and it has been the best and yet WORSE thing I could have done. I now have to fight this insane addiction to watch the clock, wondering if 45min have passed so that I can earn a scratch card and gain more gaming coins! And all the while precious moments have passed while I stategize on how to best utilize my “Draw 4 cards” card and secure the game win.
For some reason, my UNO love affair and my justification of time wasted reminds me of Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield.” Let’s take a musical interlude…
NOW THAT THAT IS OVER WHAT IS THE PLAN?
Glad you asked. I am seriously considering going over some of my first post on this blog and re-blogging them, not only to share with those of you who have not had a chance to take the glance back, but to also remember the importance of what I am doing here for myself as an artist and writer.
The fog of life often obscures our course and we need to shed a bit of light on the path every now and again.
I PLAN TO WRITE:
I want to stay focused but not stifle my other stories. I have a list of 107 story lines. Obviously I can’t write them all at once but if one has a bit to say, I can put that down in words and save it in a file for later.
DID I MENTION I HAVE FUTURE PLANS FOR TRAVEL?
Well I do. Traveling is what gave birth to this blog in the first place. So I will continue to watch Rick Steve’s videos and refine my travel list for 2015.
And as usual, I will post things as they come, doing my best to honor my blog schedule.
Cheers! and Happy Creating!
