Time Crunch

While I consider myself to be a completely proficient multi-tasker, some days it is difficult for me to carve out time in my studio.  A growing number of obligations, interruptions, and procrastinations rudely barricade my studio door to prevent me from moving forward with my art.  At the end of any given day, I find myself wishing for more time.  Time is a fixed commodity.  It is the great equalizer.  We all have the exact same 24 hours in our days. What we do with those precious hours, in some ways, defines us.  And since I would like to be defined as an ‘artist’, I will push past my time-sapping nemeses and reclaim my studio.  There’s a blank canvas waiting patiently for some of my precious, priceless time.

I am currently dealing with a monster in my studio.  Built over the past several years through carefully crafted procrastination, this four-drawer Frankenstein is more commonly referred to as a ‘filing cabinet’.  Stuffed full of unnecessary documents and bulging in protest, he is pressing against the closet doors that have kept him hidden from the rest of the world.  It is crucial that I reign him back in before he bursts out of his prison and literally explodes all over my art studio.  I created him, so armed with only a paper shredder, I must destroy him.  And so begins the first of my New Year’s Resolutions.  If you don’t hear from me soon, you will know that I have been defeated, and the monster has won.  I’m off to the battlefield!
