Conflicting Priorities

I’m behind by a couple of tutorials in the Jean Haines Watercolour School I signed up for. They’re interesting, and I’m chomping at the bit to dig in.

I need to stake my tomatoes and tend to a handful of other things at the community garden.

My desk is a mess. There are Story Circle Network things to do, I have to finish the prompt for my writing group, and there’s the general administrative things that one needs to tend to in life.

I’m reading an excellent book and. It’s from the library, and I’m on a deadline.

It’s been ages since I pulled out my big girl camera.

I want to write.

And do other things.

And do nothing.

And I thinking having a steady flow of things I want to give my attention to, and the discipline of balance, is a good thing.

But, man, I want to splash some watercolour paint on paper.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
