mushrooms from the neighbor’s yard

Maybe I would have been better off to have been born without ambition. Maybe I would be satisfied with a 9-5 Walmart on the weekends existence.  As it is, I want to accomplish things.  I have ideas to be painted, words bursting inside my brain to be written down. Maybe then I wouldn’t feel like I’m drowning… while my to-do list goes unfinished and the baby cries and endless dinners need to be cooked and the laundry! the laundry has a life of its own. And I don’t even iron. Maybe then, I wouldn’t look at a day as a time to accomplish, but as a chance to dwell, to stay, to be still in the realities around me… the comforts of my home, the love of my husband, the affections of my baby son.

I hope no one remembered that I said I’d have an open Etsy shop August first. Let’s get one thing very clear. Never, never take any time frame I suggest seriously.

On the upside, my new/old job at the Dr’s office now has doodle-time. I call people—hundreds a day—and tell them when to come, remind them of appointments that they don’t remember they made. And I have a pen in my hand and a blank side of computer paper and time to doodle while phones ring endlessly and  old men amble in the next room to look at their calendar.  So I made a list of projects, while the phone rang, and the list has 38 projects. Thirty Eight. Shallwe?
