I have too much stuff to do.
There is a lot to do between now and the end of the year with lots of family visiting and holiday preparations and decorating and baking and card writing.
There is my University Chorus concert next weekend, so we have extra rehearsals scheduled this week with the orchestra.
I have three poetry meetings in the next two weeks, two with Sappho’s Circle and one with Bunn Hill Poets.
There are also the usual chores and appointments and shopping and meal prep and what-not.
Meanwhile, what I really want to be concentrating on is solidifying the experiences from the poetry conference last week.
Theoretically, I could do everything at once, but too much of it involves an amount of brain power that I can only muster a few hours a day. I need to trust that my brain can keep working on poetry while I am accomplishing other things, that I can continue to glean lessons from the conference somewhere in the back of my mind that I will be able to bring to the top of my mind later when I have settled the holiday stuff and can return to some semblance of normal life.
Wish me luck…
