Friday, June 24, 2011: Procrastination

         The calendar may have declared summer's arrival, but today is cold and wet---too cold and wet to get out in the garden. I float about indoors, wandering around the house.  There is house cleaning which must be done before the Monday book club meeting. Plenty to keep me busy indoors.  Yet, here I am . . . procrastinating, unable to face the mundane.

         My soul is itchy. I'm not sure if something deep inside is pushing, desperate to dance, to expand outward with abandonment, or if part of an aging "me" is simply falling apart momentarily, unable to find purpose in everyday routines.

          I escape into photography, knowing it is a temporary respite; knowing that soon enough I will buckle down to dusting and scrubbing. Damn. I've become predictable.

Taking pictures is far more interesting than cleaning. This is a lovely macro. I seem to spend more time procrastinating about cleaning than actually doing it.
