I have not been too enthusiastic about writing anything in the past week. I am still not in the groove, but start I must, somewhere. How better than answering Cee’s questions?
Here are my answers to this week’s share your world questions
What goal are you working on now?
Must I have a goal? I do have a bunch of backlog work. My house (esp kitchen and my clothes cupboard) need cleaning. Of the industrial variety. I feel a little smothered by a couple of life issues that I cannot disclose. I need to find a way to deal with them.
In the big picture, I want more mindfulness in life. Seems like a life goal to me.
What is one thing you’re glad you tried but would never do again?
Having a child. The most powerful, life-altering, mind boggling, intensely satisfying and irreplaceable experience – not just the giving birth bit, but the whole parenting shebang. But once is enough, thank you.
Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?
Either way, I am so glad it happened when it did. I can’t imagine doing anything else in my life. Yes, it comes with its own package of frustrations (e.g. A document I am editing wants to “solutionize” the problem and give me a stroke), nevertheless…this profession is choice supreme. Whether the wand chose the wizard or the wizard, the wand, is immaterial; the magic is all that matters.
Have you ever gotten lost?
All the effing time. I have the sense of direction of a fossil. The only direction I recognize is down, given that gravity is quite a dog and all that. I am even getting lost in my daily nightmares. Usually inside large empty buildings.
Grateful for/looking forward to:
I am grateful that everything passes.
I am looking forward to getting back the writing mojo. I may have kickstarted it.
