Stop Two on the Book Tour: Fabulous and Fun!

Time to Think about Time

It's 3 a.m. on a Monday morning.  I have to wake up and feed hungry mouths at 6:15 a.m., and then I have to feed hungry minds at 11 a.m.  The blog tour begins today, which is exciting.  I checked my blog stats and found that people are reading my 2009 posts.  Uh-oh!  Adventures of a Reluctant Patient resurface!

These posts are from the time around my reconstructive ankle surgery.  My life has changed a lot since then, mostly in extremely positive ways, yet, looking back at those posts, I feel the echoes and twinges of the ghost of ankle pain past.  It rattles empty pain pill containers together and warns me to be careful of my other ankle, or I may have to go through it all again.  I couldn't.  I wouldn't.  Once was enou-, no, more than enou-, no, wait.  Once was too much.

Anyway, so even though I felt compelled to take down all the photos from that time period when I made every single photo private, the words are still there, and they are more revealing than photos could be, as I light-heartedly lay down my experiences for those who may be considering this surgery to see so they would be able to make an informed decision and maybe have a taste of what to expect after the surgery.  That's all great, of course, but then, what I am going to blog about lately?

I promised the nice people at the New Tech Network I would do a guest blog, but the spring semester sucked up my time.  I could be writing that blog for them right now, but it's not the right time.  That's what it all comes down to: time.  It's always the right time or the wrong time for something.  2009 was the right time for my surgery and those blogs surrounding it.  3 a.m. is the right time for blog-pondering.  2015 is the right time for writing a lot of picture books, apparently, as that's what I'm doing lately.  Summer is slated to be the right time for finishing my single parenting memoir.  When is the right time for me time?

All the time.  Writing is me time, music is me time, and now sleeping will also be me time.  They are all ways to re-energize, but with writing, I get to share the energy.  All in due time.
