Tr:  Excuse Me.  I learned this word early on thinking it would come in handy, but I could never bring myself to say it.  Then when we were in the way crowded SHUK (market) last week I heard someone saying it behind me.  I thought, "Hey that sounds like someone's saying excuse me!" Took me awhile to realize I was right and that I should get out of the person's way.

Fooling around with Evernote to organize an article.  Why am I doing this?

1.  Because I like to learn new tech stuff.
2.  Scrivener was recommended but costs $.
3.  I was going to make a wiki, but this is just going to be for me.
4.  There are different parts to this project and I want to keep them organized.

Not sure Evernote's the way to go though.  It pops all these different notes into a file, but it could still end up being a big mess.  If you've got a better idea, please let me know.

Time for a nectarine while I ponder this.  Last night we swam at the Technion pool. Tonight we're heading down to the beach for dinner at a boardwalk cafe.  Didn't want you to think I was overexerting myself over here.

I was getting a little stressed about my writing goals, but then I read in my Artist's Way book that I should focus on the project as playful learning, rather than a chore. Rather than succumbing to negative thoughts about my progress, I should put my energy into being vigilant about treating myself kindly and gently.  Thought I'd give it a try.  This past school year was so chock-filled with worry and frustration.  Why not focus on a little enjoyment for a change?

Enjoyment. I think enjoyment is sometimes found in the simplest things...

Maybe, once you get into your writing, an enjoyment blog challenge is in order. I do better blogging during "challenges".

You are very well deserving of some rest and relaxation. Don't give it another thought!
