Much ado about everything

It’s nearing the end of the month — for me that is crunch time.  I won’t be around much until the newsletter is published and mailed.

So much is spinning around in my head right now.

Appointments, errands, meetings and deadlines are competing with reading, meditation, poetry and  photography.  Responsibilities are at odds with desires.

I want to devote time to writing and reading, to communicate and be creative.  Instead, I am feeling suffocated by paperwork, e-mail documents, and the needs of the people I love.

Winter has covered the world with a blanket of snow.  It is beautiful, yet I also see the damage caused by the heavy load — branches have broken off trees; limbs are weighed down, held captive by the weight of snow.

  1. I remember when I did the church news letter! Do you have an enforced deadline set? IT eased my pressure bunches when I put one in. Pastor backed me on it.

  2. Hope you get everything done that you need to!!!

  3. We´ll be here, when you get your newsletter done. It´s hard those time under pressure, I know them too well.

  4. My head is spinning too. I am constantly thinking, planning, and working in my head. And, when not doing that, I’m working for real … early start on spring cleaning, finishing up lagging projects, restyling for the season, etc.

    Oy. More spinning!

    I hope that you have a good week and find time to breathe. 🙂

  5. Put one snowshoe in front of the other. You’ll get there.

    As if I know anything about snowshoes. 😉

  6. Hope you get everything done that you need to with time to spare! In the words of a line out of the movie Water Boy: YOU CAN DO IT! 😀

  7. the snow will be melting soon. the weights will lift too… sending you hugs until they do!

  8. Ohhhhhh don’t you just hate it when responsibility trumps desire?! I know I do! But… God expects us to get those things done too… and we do! And it makes the things of our desire sO much BETTER! 🙂 Git ‘er done!

  9. Funny, I used to do the church bulletin. Had to have it done every week!
