Yesterday, I started my morning as I usually do. Cup of coffe in hand, at the computer, checking my e-mail and the blogs. I had several things on my mind, one of which is teaching an adult arts/crafts class. Going into blogland was not the place! I visited photography blogs, sewing blogs, quilting, crafting, scrapbooking, and more! Each one is a specialized, focused place. I, on the other hand, do not focus in one area. I saw incredible works of creativity using fabric, plastic, needles, hooks, and you name it! I viewed beautiful, organized workrooms. I checked out Flickr pools that amazed me. It brought me down but yet I couldn't tear myself away! It was like watching an accident. And I came away exhausted, frustrated, and anything but inspired or full of creativity.
It's all about balance. Finding that fine point where you can be, peace amidst chaos. My Handsome Prince went to see his Orthopeadic Oncologist for his yearly exam (14 years running). After years of being clean, they have found a spot on his lung. Now we are waiting. Finding that balance. Wondering who to tell, what to say, but really there is nothing to say because we don't know. Now he is making appointments for full body scans, consultations with Cardiothoracic surgeon, and possible surgery. And we wait.
We are ok. We have found our balance. The girls are good, as they should be. We just have another issue in our lives to deal with. It is up to us to find the balance in which to deal with it. So, unlike yesterday, I am not going to get bogged down in blogland. I'm going to go into my own corner of creativity and come out with some ideas. Sometimes that wide spectrum is just too much, don't you think?
