Too Busy to Breathe

The next time something comes up I just have to say no. Enough with the word yes. How is it that I get myself involved in things where I find myself so busy? Busy is not even the word for it. One thing after another, and there's no breathing room.

But how can I say no? It's too late, I've already said yes. Just go with it. It will pass and there will be time for me soon enough.

This weekend is a Greek dance event I agreed to help with, so now I'm busy with that. Maybe once it's over I can relax, until our annual festival comes up. Another thing I say yes to.

Can't I just paint in my little art studio? Can't I just sit and knit in my cozy corner? Or read my book? Or daydream?

Well, I did find an hour or so to paint. I'm so dizzy with to-do's I couldn't decide what to paint. Whatever comes from the process of painting will have to do until I can think clearly and focus.


I played with those veggie photos again and came up with this small section to paint. Interesting colors and shapes in a weird composition, but let's see where it leads. I'm too busy to paint larger than this and it's fine. Then again, if I did start a large piece I could work on it a little at a time.

No, too much pressure. We will keep it simple for now.

    1. Thank you Maria! I'll be too busy organizing for inspiration. I'm on a committee, reminds me of the TV show the Apprentice!
