Right now I'm working on several projects - one at a time. There are so many unfinished creative bits of myself lying around the house. I want to organize and declutter. Traditionally, January is a slow time at work in a month filled with sad anniversaries. The spike-in-the-chest pain has subsided over the years to a dull ache that never goes away. I need to be productive.
So far this weekend, I've finished a hat, a baby jacket and a sweater. I've pulled out two more sweaters and a wrap that were tossed aside for Christmas projects. One of the Christmas projects wasn't finished in time for my parents to see so that has to be completed. I have still to input one letter my mom wrote to my grandmother when we were stationed in Germany. Most of the photographs have been scanned. I have to sit down with my parents and document the stories that go with the pictures then put them all together. Then I have to navigate Lulu so the memories will be preserved for the kids.
At some point I also need to finish Casey's revisions. I've been carting that sheaf of papers with me all over town and on my recent travels. Someone somewhere is waiting for that book to come out and show them how to help their own dog. I need to finish it.
I need to finish a lot of things before I start new. I will. I always do. I may have slowed down a bit lately but that doesn't mean I'm not always thinking about how to continue/improve/finish. I am. I will.
Finishing - an important part of creating.
