The energy is rising

The energy is rising

The pace is picking up, the energy is rising, and more and more people are getting active again. Responding to prompts for the first time, or –as I am doing– revisiting them once more, generously (as is wont to happen in The Creative’s Workshop!) sharing insights and questions and cheerings-on in comments to prompts and dailies, engaging with others to ensure there’s ”connectability” once TCW shuts down in 8 days…

and I still don’t want it too!

And yet…
I know. I will be there, every day, until it’s over.
And I know. I will miss it dreadfully, when it does.
And I know. I need it too.
I need the break.
I need digital sabbats. For longer than I’ve been taking them these past months (barely, honestly).

The increase and decrease.
After a massive surge –not least this past month with a lot of work as well– both work and TCW are set to decrease around the same time.
A massive deadline at work in 7 days, TCW ends the day after.

Perhaps, it’s even a godsend?

Plenty of time… until all of a sudden, I don’t have enough. Story of my life…

And it’s funny – because there seems to be a gene controlling this human feature (flaw?) that skips a generation. Or at least skipped a generation when I am concerned. My father, oh my, he gets something to do, and he does it. He doesn’t bother to wait until there’s a deadline, he simply gets it done. Whereas me and my brother, give us a deadline, and we’re chill up until the very last minute when all of a sudden we scramble and hustle to get whatever-it-is done and handed in on time… or at least try to, occasionally failing miserably. Is it the instant gratification monkey rearing his ugly head?

Anyway. Off I go, hustling for half an hour, before I have to head off!
