Finally I have a moment to myself. It’s been day after day of being yanked in a multitude of directions. People wanting, needing, requesting, and whatever verbage you could think of…well, that was all directed at me. I’m only one man but I have to wear many hats. I try to keep them all neatly stacked in my mental closet but sometimes there’s no time for organization. You grab what you can and hope you have the right. Usually I’m right but there are times I’ve walked into areas without the proper headgear.
But right now I don’t have to worry about hats. There are no places to go or things to do or people to see. There’s just me, this laptop, and an empty space with no light. If my parents saw me like this they would plead for me to turn the light on so I wouldn’t ruin my eyes. That may be fine for later but I’m liking this scenario of putting my fingers to the keys with only the illumination of the computer screen as my light source.
Soon I’ll have to venture out into the world. People still want or need or request my presence so my hats are ready. But having this moment to myself, to have some thoughts of my own, is something I need to do more often.
