If all responsibility is imposed on you, then you may want to exploit the moment and want to be overwhelmed by the responsibility; yet if you try, you will notice that nothing was imposed on you, but that you are yourself this responsibility.
I’ve been ignoring things around me. I have a house that needs cleaning, quilt blocks that need blocking, knitting projects that need knitting, holiday planning that needs planning, baked goods that need baking, writing projects that need writing, books that need reading, movies that need watching, coffee that needs drinking. . . I’m rambling again, aren’t I?
Well, I think I need to take a few days off from blogging so that I can try to regain some resemblance of control. I need to actually work on some of the things I need to do, rather than just thinking about them and making “To Do” lists. Plus, I’m not feeling all that great, so somewhere in the middle of all this stuff that I think I need to do, I’m going to have to find time to actually rest so that I don’t have to take those damn muscle relaxants that knock me out and make me loopy.
So, posts will be sporadic this week.
BTW, I finally saw the movie A Prairie Home Companion. I’ve been listening to it for years, but I wasn’t sure how they were going to adapt it to the screen. I thought it was wonderful. And Robert Altman was the perfect person to direct because of his ability to have all these different characters and different conversations going on at the same time and still make it cohesive. Plus, there’s a number in the show where Dusty and Lefty sing a song about Bad Jokes, that is broken up with bad jokes, of course. I love bad jokes: What do you call a cross between Holy Water and Castor Oil? A religious movement. *Snort*
Well, I’m gonna sign off now. I’ll still check in on ya. I can’t go cold turkey, after all.
