Adrenaline – and stars and blossoms, too.

I recently found this fragment of writing in my drafts folder, written at a time when work was beyond busy. It sums up the frantic energy — tiring but rewarding — that has been tearing me away from any creativity recently.

 

How rare is it now that I look up to see the stars, or down into the tangled sprawl of blossoms? Though I may look, I so seldom see beyond the words on a screen, printing their way across my thoughts, or the many tiny puzzle pieces of a schedule I must fit together, the ever shrinking number of days left to do it.

None of this is to say I am unhappy. Busy, tired, at times overwhelmed, but challenged, stretched and growing, too. 

So many thoughts employed, so much to do, that I must beg your pardons, stars, blossoms, but it will be another few weeks till we meet again. Till then, I am flying by will and grit alone.

  1. I do believe I’ve been there, though my walks are few and far between, and sometimes I forget how pure the air is and know not if it is cool or cold, But mostly I miss the garden, and the smell of the pungent earth and hearing the birds twitter in the trees, and the sweet fragrance of flowers that sometimes tickled my nose.Then I begin to ponder the reason we build houses and live in them so completely.
