Leftovers



I’m ready to get back to work, now. I’ve been out of the work mindset for several weeks now and have been enjoying the unstructured mental space, but now I’ve pretty well reached the bottom of my tolerance for surfing Facebook and starting into space and I want to get back to being submerged in something that lights up my brain again. This unstructured time is beginning to feel like wasting time and life’s too short to waste. 

That said, I don’t really have much control over my muse: he appears when he’s damn well ready to appear, but I’m at the point where I’m ready to open the doors and clear the workbench (literally and figuratively) in preparation for that visitation. 

What I ought to be doing is clearing old projects off my slate, yet even knowing this I’m struggling to motivate myself to actually do it. I know what steps I need to take. I know where all the materials are. I’ve had it on my list for days now, yet still I procrastinate. It’s like getting around to eating the last of the leftovers in the back of the fridge: it needs to be done so new stuff can go it, but everything is stale and limp and cold and not quite big enough to be a satisfying meal and not quite compatible enough to combine with anything else. Le sigh.

So I guess I have my work cut out for me.
