The thing about SORTING and SIFTING (referred to in the previous post) is that I’m not the same person I was a year ago.
The person who had to set things aside very suddenly to tend to more serious business is not the same person who is making choices NOW about what to invest time and energy in.
We may look like the same person, but we aren’t. (I’m actually older than she is. And more charming.) 🙂
All of a sudden the person who absolutely always wanted to do such-and-such…..isn’t that interested anymore.
And the person who was oblivious to this-and-that…..places this-and-that at the top of the priority list.
The sieve has changed.

THE BOOK I was lackadaisical about writing suddenly seems very important to finish, while topics I was once fired-up about I have barely a spark in me to write.
Sometimes things happen that make you look at things differently. I don’t think this is by accident. I think it’s direction.
I’m going to the eye doctor for a check-up today. Whether the doctor will detect any changes in my vision, I don’t know. But I can tell you for sure that I’m seeing things through a different lens now than I did a year ago.
