This. Maybe it’s my age. I feel like I’m bouncing back-and-forth between my perception of time and what to do with it. You know how when you ask somebody how they’re doing, and they say, “ I’m SO busy!” Well, that’s what I’ve consciously been avoiding saying this last year. My parents are elderly and so I am savoring the tiny subtle moments that I have in the day and realize the importance (for the first time in my life) to not rush. However, I’m torn because I’m so happy creating art and it is a challenge to find the time for it. I have many hats right now; caregiver for my elderly parents; mother to a teen; wife; home owner; salon owner, friend...that I want to be as efficient as I can. Do any of you feel that contradiction of time?
