We have been having some gorgeous mornings lately. Technicolor blue and yellow and pink skies. I am torn between being out, hiking and photographing, and staying in, journaling and editing. There are only so many free morning hours. This morning was an “in” morning, but I saw the pink skies out the window and found myself wishing I could be two places at once.
I’m a bit out of sorts these days… My Smartphone Art workshop was last weekend (workshop report to come!) and there is always a void after completing a big project like that for the first time. Always a period of “Now what?” I have a number of possible things on the list, and the fall eCourse Journey of Fascination is coming up in September, but I’m really in an indecisive swirl. I’m telling myself to go play a bit more, see what bubbles up to the top, but it’s hard for me not to just jump on the next idea that comes along.
So I’ve armed myself with a few new apps to play with, and am looking through the list of random errands I need to run, and I’m trying not to overcommit in my desire to be doing something, anything, with intense focus. In writing this I’ve just realized: It’s so much easier for me to manage one big thing than lots of little things. I’m comfortable with intense focus to reach a goal where I’m not with scattered actions that don’t feel like they are moving me ahead.
But, I think I’ll stay here in this soupy mess of random actions and small projects for a while. I’ll enjoy the technicolor skies and the fleeting summer days. Somehow I know, it’s the little things I should be doing right now. No matter how uncomfortable it makes me.
