I even procrastinate about talking to myself, that's how bad it is

I am obviously very undisciplined about keeping up with more than one blog. I do pretty well with blogging on Gaia and I think what keeps me going is the sense of community and the running commentaries, whereas here I tend to feel that I'm talking to myself which I do more than often enough in my car. But a community with a specific intention is a little different - it's like thinking that because I talk with people at the yoga studio I don't need to speak at any other time during the day. Which maybe would benefit the world, come to think of it, but I'm not going there.

I've also tried to limit the time that I am glued to a keyboard or video game in favor of, say, doing an art project or maybe sweeping the floor or taking off my pyjamas before I forget how to do those things altogether. But that's not the point. Assuming I have a point, I think it would be that this is exactly the place for talking to myself and I'm falling down on the job. And that if I were more diligent it might cut down on the number of times I have to start pretending I'm on my phone because someone is watching me babble on and on in my car all by myself.
So I'm committing to posting a couple of times a week at least, say about as often as I sweep the floor or take off my pyjamas. Kidding about the pyjamas...

Now I have to get on to the art project. I was the one who initiated this postcard/art card circle where we all exchange handmade cards once a month and of course, I'm the one who's going to be late late late this month - although I haven't received anyone else's cards yet, so I'm assuming in good company. I'm posting a shot of one of last month's cards. I'd post the current month's, but, oh yeah, I'm a slacker and they aren't ready yet.

At this rate I think we'll have thanksgiving dinner on Valentine's Day...


  1. So if you are talking to yourself here, am I invading your thoughts? (:
    Even so, as usual it is an interesting read! Talking to oneself in the car- most folk drive around oblivious of other cars, much less the drivers, doing all kinds of crazy things, far more distracting and hazardous, than talking to themselves. How do they know you're not talking on a headset, singing, or talking to some really short person in the passenger seat? If they did actually notice you talking to yourself, that means they are actually paying attention to YOU, a good thing on the road, and better yet, if they thought you were nuts, they would make more of an effort to avoid you and give you plenty of distance- a plus! I think I am more conscientious of the random outburst of laughter at inappropriate times...not necessarily from anything external, but funny, non-verbal crap I think about- ha!

    You do better than I on the posting, commenting, reciprocal blogging thing, and a much more busy person. I attempt to create an illustration or two everyday if not every other day, some for contests, and then there's the spontaneous violin playing- I get lost in it, and often still in my pajamas. I am fortunate when I can upload my pieces to Deviant Art, Blogger and Facebook, every other day, much less catch up with other folks' posts (regrettably), or ugh, housework! I should try your rollerblade/speed house cleaning method (:

    Infinite blessings!

  2. Don't try the rollerblading technique unless you are friends with an orthopod, that's my advice. Well, if you don't have 4 dogs to fall over, it might work out better.
