Almost 13 years ago, I moved to fairly rural Mississippi. It has been an education, and as Robert Khayat expressed it, the education of a lifetime. Things happen and things change. Sometimes we make them happen and sometimes they just happen to us, but it all results in change. Of course, since the world is a system of many systems, that also means it often happens in phases and stages and circles and cycles, which is how Willie Nelson puts it.
I have been on the road more days and hours than not in the past several days. One thing I do especially when I am traveling alone is use the time to sort out things. Lately, I have been sorting out what is time to let go of and in which direction I need to be traveling. I have important work to do, and it is easy to distract oneself from that work with things that begin to drain your energy, your focus, and definitely your time. Let's face it: there are only 24 hours in a day, so all we can do is manage the use of the time we have.
If we do not, then things tend to pile up, and the higher the pile, the more difficult it is to sort it out. That is not earth shattering news to anyone, but it does not make it any less true. If we want to sort out the pile, however, we need to at least have an idea where it is we want to be when done.
