i’m back

Wow. It’s been 4 months since I’ve written a post on this site. Putting together the Spirit of the Sea Festival was a heavy and time consuming responsibility. And it seems like it’ll never end. There are still bills rolling in, errands to run, website to update, records to file…

Meanwhile, all the stuff I was supposed to be doing over the spring/summer is still waiting. And the pile is growing everyday. Housing diversity, arts committee, heritage inventory and others are all desperately behind schedule. I feel like I’m drowning already but I’m still standing on the dock.

I haven’t read the book by Susan Jeffers, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, but my sister highly recommends it. When hosts on Mestiza used to tell me they were scared to go on stage, I’d tell them something similar.

I’d say it’s like jumping off the high diving board; you look down, feel the fear and jump anyway; close your eyes and jump, feet first; feed off the fear. It’s what makes it exciting.

I’ve barely had a couple weeks to catch my breath, but it’s time to jump back in.

So, here I go…
