I just got off the phone with my brother and he (very diplomatically) reminded me that I have been falling down on my blogging duties. So this post is for him.... and anyone else who needs it.
It's been a tough week. I've been teaching a weeklong Intro to DSLR bootcamp at the Light Factory in Uptown Charlotte plus getting my schedule back to normal after the onslaught of dance recitals at Queens University plus the air conditioner in my house conked out plus... Yes, it's a horrible run-on sentence but it's been a run-on kind of week.
Sometimes I let myself get so caught up in the act of making sure I get it all done that I forget what it truly takes to accomplish that --- Recharging. Sometimes you have to just say no. No foot planting necessary as that act can require an expenditure of energy that you're lacking. You just make a choice and accept it.
Yes, I've had several people in my life remind me of that this week. So to my mother, my best friend Sara and my brother... Thank you. I am recharging myself for the rest of the weekend.
