I'm tired and I still want to read before turning in for the night but I want to fulfill my Tuesday duty so please come along to the confessional.
Today was a day that I was crazy busy but alas I confess few of my priority tasks were checked off my to do list. I have days like that because my work can be so crisis driven that the best of planning sometimes just will not work. Grrr!
It's not a new thing and I've had to learn to live with it. Sometimes it's frustrating enough to want to cast planning to the wind but I don't. Here's to more check offs tomorrow.
I was thinking this morning how strange it is to think as spring training is underway that the Giants will be starting the season as defending World Series champions and how different that is from the perception many had of the team's chances going into last the start of the season last year. Many sports commentators thought the Giants were maybe like perhaps a third place team in their division. First spring training game is this Friday against the D-Backs. I confess it feels like a heavy weight for the team going onto this season and being the defending champion. I will try to be the good fan and keep an optimistic outlook.
Sometimes I feel like pushing my creativity in different directions. A couple years ago I tried doing some charcoal sketching. I confess that I'm not really very talented at this but I enjoyed trying to see various things and people through sketch. I thought I would allow my to observe things from a different perspective. I still think this is a good idea, but admittedly I haven't done any for a while. I think I'd like to be able to do sketches of people. I also love photographs of people taken as when they are doing things and appear totally unaware of the shot being taken. Little moments where they seem self absorbed in something.
I confess I'd like to have a pint of black walnut ice cream right now. Ok, I confess I'd really like more than a pint. ;)
Until next time, I hope you have some sweetness to your week!
