A Spring Weather Weekend’s Ruminations

The past few days have been delightfully relaxing and refreshing, the weather as if it was spring: warm, bright, clear and strikingly beautiful.  This weekend has made it easier to recall the spring and autumn days that seem to bring the Bay Area to its richest colors, the times when one can easily awake and marvel, observing the world as the daytime passes by…

January passed quickly; the beginning of the month was full with a writing project taking all of my attention, followed by a great deal of work for my day job to meet an approaching deadline.  The deadline for the work occurred two Fridays ago and was met in time.  All of the hard work put in during the weeks preceding was rewarded with a full but non-stressful week this past week as now things are being tested.

It was only on this past Friday did I really feel the demands of work had finally eased to the point where I could fully relax and begin to direct my attention back to my personal work and life.  This weekend I have been catching up slowly with emails and notes I had written to myself, reviewing the state of my personal work, as well as looking at how life has gone by since the new year began. Thinking about all the things I had sought out to focus on for this year, I knew going in January that I would have to commit myself to these other tasks first before attending to my goals, yet it seems like a great deal of time has passed now…

This weekend was fantastic for taking a look at it all, though was only the beginning of the process. Again I’m faced with looking how to balance the day job, tai-chi, music programming, composing, general learning, and all the rest.  I feel that one thing that was definitely missed during the busy beginning of this year was a daily life filled with reflection and observation, so that will certainly be on my mind this coming week.

Regardless of how it will develop from here, I can say that I have enjoyed catching up the past few days and getting back in touch with all of these very important concerns of mine. Looking forward, I do not know how it will all happen but will be interested to see how it all goes…
