monday's musing - late again

"Keep calm and carry on." - UK Ministry of Information poster from WW II (never distributed)

I need this.

I've been needing this. 

I think I'll order a poster for every room. And mugs. And.... Such is the extraordinarily myopic year of one's life while in the midst of book-writing. Because really...being overwhelmed is not a tragedy, is it? It's a fantastic project, and I am lucky to be able to work on it. And if the Brits can keep a stiff upper lip during something actually incredibly serious, then so can I - as the knitting needles click and the deadlines loom.

Right? :)

monday's musing

"You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood."
"What mood is that?"
"Last-minute panic." 
- Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson

monday's musing - (very) late edition

"Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus." - Alexander Graham Bell

Sorry to be MIA! I've been traveling about meeting wonderful people and petting yarn. Life is good. :)
