One thousand four hundred and forty minutes in the day, and I chose the minute a small hawk swooped in to land on a bare branch of the dead sapphire berry bush, to look out my window. Perched but a moment, he dropped to the ground and disappeared into the monstrous grey owl juniper. Perhaps this was his dinner a bit earlier, perhaps not. A rough life for all when the world is full of shadows of things that think you are so delectable.
Divorcing myself from this computer has become a monumental task to follow through with. The catalog of all things needed or not needed but desired; keeps me mesmerized hour upon hour, day upon day, month upon month. Where is that final necessity or craving? Always a perpetual need to fix, improve or add. No satisfaction with what is. I'm a surferholic of the internet, a zombie of the web world, a finder of anything if I just have a bit more time than the day holds. Prioritizing is a bitch because it takes perseverance and an insight into what I really need in my life to be at peace with myself. I'm working at it.
Our greatest weakness
lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed
is always to try
just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison
Thirteen days until Christmas, that holiday that has my name written all over it, and I haven't done anything Christmas. I need to change that immediately.
