Criminal

I don't know what's going on with me lately, but today I felt so sharp and alert. At the same time, I'm really impatient and so many of the things I do feel like a waste of time. I guess what I mean is, I have all this creative energy, but all these little incidentals keep robbing me of my spare time.

I am dying for time off and freedom from obligation. I'm absolutely dying to use my mind for my own pleasure and purposes, in the way it's best suited to be used.

Tomorrow after work I hope to pay my bills, begin reading a manuscript for work, do yoga, read two issues of The New Yorker, and write two letters for two separate friends who have asked me to do so.

There's no way I can get all that done. No way.

Arg.

It's criminal.

There is a way... But it will require a ball of yarn, two cats (of any sort), pens, rubber bands, and you having a medical degree. Then you can have the cats play with the yarn atop some stationary, and you can tell your friends that you only know how to write like that because you're a doctor.
It's SO doable!

I think you should just focus on what you need and not worry about everyone else so much.

Be good to you, baby!

Sending you love and a hug from across the city!

Thanks, sweets! But I actually want to write these letters & so forth. I think they're a good thing to do for me and for the people who need them. I just wish there was more time every day.

No guessing games. But my internet connection has been wonky lately, which is part of the reason I haven't been blogging very much lately. Pages aren't loading. Let's hope it clears up soon.

I did get to pass along a story to someone who can probably give good feedback, though I don't know if he's going to be able to exchange. I hope he can, and in any case, I have enough feedback to get working. Maybe this weekend - maybe I'll have some time.
