Clutter


I haven't been writing enough. Hell, if I am honest I have not been doing enough of anything: writing, sleeping, thinking, pausing.

I won't pretend that it's because I am always running around tending to others.

It's a lot because my mind gets so cluttered that it's hard to pick out what needs picking. Like the meat tucked into the belly of the lobster. When you can extrapolate it the reward is sweet and tender. But sometimes it's too entwined with the cartilage and you end up chewing the plasticy parts. Completely unfulfilling.

I am very cluttered right now.

Unable to pick out any of the good stuff.

Only a Mainer who knows how to pick a lobster right would make that analogy and do it so well. I completely understand.

Oh my- I am not a Mainer- least not fully. Am I? Oh, dear.

I don't know if it will help you with "clutter", Megin, but this advice from someone who is good at it helps me: "Selection, Rejection, Concentration. Focus increases impact."

Thanks, Amy. I've been thinking about that since I read your comment earlier.
Have a great weekend-
