Things sure have been busy these days. The past week or two I’ve had to pull back on my blogging activities which take a huge amount of my time. All the Youth Film Festival stuff took a lot out of me, trying to keep things going, and co-ordinating all the pieces so that it all came together. It feels like a calm after a storm. I’ve also had to spend more time with my family. Having a 2 month old baby requires much more time for the whole family. I guess I just need a little break. Tonight I was just thinking how I am in front of a computer must of my awake hours. From after I wake up….at the office…then back again at home till late in the night. It’s always a challenge keeping everything in balance (SikhNet, family, financial, personal, excercise, fun, etc). Tonight rather than spending hours on the computer/blogging I opted for relaxing and watching a DVD. What a concept! I guess I always figure that my time is better spent doing something that inspires or helps people…than a few hours of idle entertainment for just me. There is the feeling of expectation now….that I have to live up to with the blog…and have to keep it at a certain level to keep going. Anways…I guess I’m kind of rambling. I think I’m just feeling that I am taking some time off the computer to renew my creative energies and take care of myself and family. I still feel the "vacation" urge….but you know how it can be when you are just in the busy’ness and you have to make an effort to plan something. It’s hard to really take time off when you are at home. It’s too easy to do work around the house and chores. One has to get away to let it go.
So, I probably won’t be my normal daily punctual blogging self for a bit. I would rather not post anything, than post something not very interesting. Hey…why not explore the blog archives? Or browse through the "Category Cloud" on the side navigator. Even I find it interesting to read/watch/listen to some of the older posts. There is lots of good stuff…that hearing more than once is benefitial.
Ok…time to get to bed a bit earlier than normal.
