"A man's gotta know his limitations."
~ Dirty Harry Callahan
Truer words were never spoken.
Did you ever have so much to do, that you were just paralyzed? That's where I am, right now.
Housework (major housework), blog-writing, blog-surfing, revamping the website, re-writing and mailing brochures, a front yard that looks worse than any other on the block, and gecko running wild in the kitchen that refuses to be captured or killed. I'm so intimidated by it, that I'm sleeping with all the lights and the TV on. If it were bigger (and slower) I'd go after it with the gun! With all of this, I still have to find an hour or so a day to create . . . something. And, to top it all off, it's Monday night, and I've already had one sick day this week.
So, in the interest of what's left of my tenuous sanity, I'm taking a break from blogging, net surfing, and 'creating' for the next seven days.
No blog-surfing (pointlessly chasing empty traffic. BlogMad, BlogExplosion, and BlogClicker will have to do without me for awhile), and no wordy, involved blog posts. No staying up all night reading fan fiction and following link after link after . . . well, you get the idea. Honestly, I'll probably still be up all night, but not at the computer! No spontaneous Photoshopping every time I get a 'bright' idea to try something amazing.
One week to live like I did B.I. (before the Internet). I'm a little nervous about it, but curiously excited by the prospect.
I'll stop by here every morning, to post some very fresh eye candy and catch up with any comments, but that's it! Time to prove that I'm not addicted!
Hopefully, when I return, I'll be writing to you from a fabulously clean house with a neatly trimmed yard out front (though that second one is kind of a long shot as it's high asthma season, and I'm allergic to most grasses). Hopefully, the changes I have planned for Art166.com will have been implemented, and quite a few new pieces will be on display and offered for sale. (They're already completed and ready to go.)
Keep an eye out for my new "Profondo Rosso" gallery, which will be stocked with dramatically RED images. I can't wait to get those listed!
I'm really curious to see how much I can accomplish with the hours I won't be on-line.
Time will tell.
Oops, almost forgot to mention -- I opened an account at "Flickr" this weekend. Why? Because it's got a very cool slideshow function! There's not much in it yet, but if you want to check it out, click the link in my sidebar, or go here:
P. S. Did anyone catch Rick Springfield's live performance on the "Daytime Emmy Awards" Friday night? He totally rocked! I'm thinking 56 is the new 35!
