One Cobble at a Time

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

I found my business brain this morning, which was a relief, because I haven’t been able to access focused business thoughts since some time before Christmas. I think the holidays exude a brain fog and encourage me to step outside of all my usual patterns. Which is a good thing. Breaks generally are, however it is a relief to find my rhythm again. I pretty much only have today before I hit weekend, more family visits, and taking Kiki back to school. January 6 our normal schedule begins in earnest.

I’ve spent lots of time with family in the past few weeks. Far more than I have for a long time. It was lovely to discover that seeing my extended family was relaxing and enjoyable rather than adding stress. This makes clear exactly how stressed I was for the prior eighteen months when visitors always added stress. I’m ready to engage socially again. Just in time, since I’m headed out to ConFusion in only two weeks. They’ve given me programming that I’m excited to be part of. I’ll detail that in a different post.

For today I plowed through accounting work and shipping work. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to find my design brain for a while and make progress on Strength of Wild Horses and on preparatory work for Massively Parallel. After that I need to find my editing brain and get to work on the challenge coin pdf. Huh, it sounds like I’ve got all sorts of brains buried in the clutter around my house, which creates an amusing mental picture and accurately describes how things feel.
