I’m whelmed. School is screaming for attention in the form of a paper. A real paper that goes to 10. Or 11 pages that is. On the Enlightenment transformation of society from Medieval to Modern. Writing will I be, tomorrow night. And Friday. A couple of good days of writing & I can stop being whelmed & be simply at the normally frenetic level of activity for the clan I lead.
Once again, I must hold in front of me-self the goal, the carrot if you will – why I’m doing this in the first place. I want to be able to teach in an accredited post-secondary institute that we run through our church. Vision keeps me plugging away.
I don’t know why, but when I think of the age of Enlightenment, I’m always reminded of that famous Monty Python line about Rene Descartes.
“I drink therefore I am.”
Here’s looking at you kid…
your goal/vision sounds very cool. i’m happy for you.
When I’m overwhelmed I think of Rob Schneider’s Cajun character in Waterboy yelling, “you can do it!”
It doesn’t help any, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.
