This year I am the Queen of unfinished projects.
Guitar? Cant play a cord.
Knitted sweater? It might be a scarf? Someday?
Delights project. HA! That is funny.
I have not posted a delight in two months. I have thought of this space often. I have thought of writing often. I have tried to process so many thoughts……..
But I must admit it, my headspace was full. I underestimated the energy it would take to leave a job after 15 years and start at a new company. It has been a wonderful, gratifying process but it required attention and headspace.
I thought I could write the morning of March 23rd as I drove into Boulder- the morning after the King Soopers shooting.
I thought I could write on March 29th when the Derek Chauvin trial started……perhaps address the trauma I felt when hearing testimony…..and the trauma many of us felt.
I could not write. It took too much energy to put emotion into words.
So I did not put anything into words. I processed. Embraced my therapist. Embraced my family. My friends. Swam. Skied. Cried.
I missed this space but not the energy it required. Alas…..I was a bit tapped.
Let your knitted sweater go. The very best project you can focus on? You.
