My Freedom

A new online class by Shimelle starts today, running Monday to Friday for five weeks, and this time there are blog prompts too, so here goes! There will be ten topics about your perspective on life and this week's topics are TIME and TRAVEL. Both of these are real biggies for me. I travel a lot, sometimes too much, sometimes in terrible weather, sometimes in a terrible hurry to get there in time, and sometimes, just sometimes, I get to relax and enjoy the experience and realise how lucky I am that I get to do this.
As for time, well I've always wanted a day (or a week) between today and tomorrow to catch up on all the things I should have done. I don't have much regularity or schedule in my life, like most freelancers there is no real division between 'work' and 'time off' for me, and I always seem to be fighting the clock. Deadlines have always been important to me, they really do get the creativity flowing in a way that doesn't seem to happen when you have all the time in the world (unfortunately). And I have to admit I'm not the best timekeeper in the world, I don't wear a watch and rely on my phone to keep me right, along with the pc which is pretty much always on and the odd clock about the place. But calendars and diaries and planners, yes I certainly need them!

I can relate to your struggle with time. IT does have a notorious tendency to fly away...

For me this workshop is an opportunity to start recording my own story.

I am talking about it all the time and writing about it on my blog (in future scheduled posts) - but do not seem to go through with it.
