Brought to you by the voice screaming in my head Sunday night.
It happened. I think I almost officially went to Crazy Land. I’m not knocking it. I think most creatives dip their toe in that pool once in awhile. If the water isn’t cold and I ease in, I’m good for a visit.
It didn’t happen that way last night. I was driving back to set up for another event. A fun event. An event that was relaxing and calming and should have been a breeze to organize. All of a sudden, driving over the hill I heard a scream inside my head. It’s simply been too much of late. Too much media. Too much time checking Huffington Post, Facebook, CNN, Twitter and more. Too much time trying to find ‘pretty’ sites to visit about things like fashion and design to rest my brain rather than going offline and, uh, resting.
My brain is hyper-active. I long for the days when it was sluggish. *DeepOld-FashionedBlackAndWhiteTelevisionSigh*
So, for now, I’m making some small changes. Mini changes. Changes of the small and not the big kind:
1. I started buying books again. I’m not talking about digital versions but real live paper books that get soaked and swollen in the bathtub. Those kind. I’m reading one book a week, focusing on memoir for now since that’s where my passion rests.
2. I’ve restructured my time. No more watching Netflix as a means of falling safely to sleep. Old episodes of The City can really screw a girl up.
3. I removed all interactive apps from my phone. Well, except for the pizza delivery one. I mean, let’s not get out of control here. FB and Twitter and Netflix are no more.
Might that change tomorrow? It could. I’m a woman and therefore inherently fickle. For now, for today life is just a bit quieter.
Have to go. Going to walk outside and star watch. And I don’t mean the magazine kind.
Much love to you as you rest and quiet the loud places,
