Left Vs Right


I seem to be a little slow at getting a start on the Creative part of my life this year. I have not left the pre-requisite 'Purge and Edit' mode - an annual necessity for one who has accumulated as much EVERYTHING as I have, in every single area of my life. Thank goodness for the New Year. I make myself sort & re-organize and put everything back so I can get tooled up to work again. When I get busy with my fall line, a tornado inhabits the energy field & strews materials from one end of this house to another. And then Christmas comes and I stuff everything in sight into boxes & hampers & bins - all mooshed together.
The real problem is that I can't use both sides of my brain at once. At the moment, I'm exercising the LEFT side - sorting, filing, organizing, planning. It's getting pretty over-taxed as it's not used consistently enough. I can feel it starting to weaken. RIGHT side is hollering - 'HEY- what about ME!'. Left Side says 'NOT until you accomplish what you NEED to - then you get to do what you WANT to.' We're losing patience with Lefty - he's not not producing results quickly enough. Righty & I are about to mutiny. We're giving him only a few more days and then SHE and I are going to over-rule and get on with our own agenda.
We did sneak in a photo shoot of this sweet babe who was born on Christmas Eve. Because BOTH sides know, that newborn babes just do NOT wait. Those precious moments are fleeting. Remember that poem -
Scrubbing and cleaning can wait for tomorrow
For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby, cause babies don't keep.
Amen.
