Self Pity and Too Much Time

Kath Bee's two posts of April 30th makes me think about what I do and where I am. Well, they are meant to stop me thinking, but they do make me wonder. I do have too much time on my hand, and I do go into a self-pity spiral, but this art thing is new and I don't know where I'm going, so I have to think before I go down the wrong way, some of the time.... Am I making sense?

Another thing is, Kiwis are, if I'm allowed to generalize, practical "doers", rather than ranting, raving, pacing ponderers. I appreciate I'm becoming a bit more of a doer, but I miss the pop-wowing of ideas with people of similar interests.

OK, corkscrew beckons.

  1. I can empathise with you Meg!! I "don't know where I'm going, so I have to think before I go down the wrong way, some of the time" too!!! And I'm probably NOT making sense!!

    I am a DOER, but it's just NO GOOD if I (we) don't know WHAT to DO!!!!

  2. You're a doer, alright. I just realized why my Philosophy professor from college is so seriously-and-almost desperately active in so many ways; if he just sat and thought all the time, he'll disappear into the ether. Three jazz gigs on the weekend before the last week of the term. Then again, he might have been a Kiwi in a previous life.
