Of course it takes longer. What kind of dumkoff is she? She is the kind who even at 71 years wishes that creative projects Would happen more quickly and easily.
(In fact, I will leave this blog layout just as it decided to configure itself despite my most valiant efforts-- because this crazy mess will give you a taste of what I mean. Is this new Blogger program wacky or what? Maybe it's just the Universe trying to teach me some new lesson. Grrr... Do you ever feel this way? )
Often things take a long time. People shake their heads empathetically and say, "Yes things always take longer than you think they will." And of course it is the journey, not the goal they remind you. A saying that trips off the lips so nicely. "Just keep at it and enjoy the journey," my dear friend Frannie advised me the other day. I like enjoying the journey. Just that the glitches sometimes get in my way. She not only gave that good advice, but being a nurse, she surmised that part of my headache/muscle ache/fatigue problem might be a severe allergic reaction. She gave me some meds to take to see if she was right. She was! I feel much better--even though the glitches that insist on appearing on this blog are rather annoying. Being irritated must be part of the journey, hey?
Thank goodness for the support and caring of good friends, including Artist Conference Network, the motivational coaching community I belong to. And thank goodness for the garden, so full of beauty and nourishment.

It's wonderful to take a break from my work on A New Wrinkle and Sage's Play by playing out in the garden.
It's more reliable than this danged blog technology!
And so I bid you adieu for now, with the wish that your work and play flow ever so nicely. Or that you have a good sense of humor when the glitches tangle things up.
As for me, I am going to make some tea and rehearse my rewritten script.
P.S. I never can get the link to my monthly newsletter to work as I am a sincere Luddite. So please go to www.sagesplay.com to subscribe to it.
