Organizer Julie Morgenstern says it's harder to make decisions when you're in limbo. She's talking about decluttering shelves and how in order to do that, you need to make choices -- should this item stay or go? If you don't know what the next season of your life is going to bring, "I might need that" becomes a very real possibility.
Ideas can get that way. This blog has been dormant precisely because of decisions unmade in a time of limbo:
Do I keep it a personal site?
Or is peachgeek going to be my "brand"?
If so, should I feature work sites I've done?
You can see I went the more personal route. I decided I just want to write for you again, not for clients (at least not in this space). So that's that. Decisions made.
Of course, it was easier to think through that while overlooking the ocean under a full moon. The family just spent a glorious seven days at the beach and it really cleared my head to be there.
Made me realize again the need for sabbath, a time to step out of the moving train that is your life (as one rabbi puts it) and just watch it from the platform. I need this weekly, but to have a chance to step back even out of the station for awhile was a huge gift. I got to look at more than the transition between weeks. I got to stand between two seasons. I still don't know what's ahead but I have a lot more peace going toward it.
