And See? Here’s the Problem

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

Psalm 37: 23-24

I know I’ve been talking about how I need to slow down. How I need to prioritize. How I need to accept the fact that, especially right now, I can’t do everything.

So of course, yesterday, I came up with an idea for a new project.

Not just one book. But a series.

No, you don’t need the details. Not yet anyway.

Instead, let’s just add that to the short stories, the advent project, the current novel, the dystopian novel, this blog…

And that’s just the writing stuff.

So I stack them all up with the most urgent projects on top.

Then I work to find the time to write.

Editor’s Note: That should read “work to make the time to write.”

It’s all about the priorities.

And like I was talking about yesterday, we can be busy with many things, or we can focus on the one thing.

I’ll admit to sometimes feeling like there are so many projects I just don’t want to get to any of them, so I

want to ignore them all.

I can’t do that.

Well, I can, but it only makes things worse down the road.

But sometimes, like last night with this post, you can hit a wall. You either have to give up or find a way to go over or around.

Kind of like our southern border. Only there it’s a lot easier than it used to be.

Too soon?

I don’t know. I got stuck on this post last night and went to bed hoping that this morning I’d find a clear path to the end. I’m not sure that I did.

I woke up to reports of gas lines after the cyber attack on the Colonial Pipeline.

I saw this movie in the 70s, and I didn’t like it then.

Hey, at least no one is getting their feelings hurt on Twitter.

Too soon?

Absolutely. After all, it’s only been four months.

OMG, it’s only been four months.

Read into that what you will. It’s a little more political than I’ve been lately. And no, I’m not diving back into that mess.

But sometimes things need to be said.

Just think about that while you’re trying to find gas this morning.

As for me? I have a stack of projects and…oh yeah…work.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
