"My evil genius Procrastination has whispered me to tarry 'til a more convenient season."
~Mary Todd Lincoln
Day after day of pounding heat . . . the result is -- I'm not sure if I'm awake or asleep. My goal is to try to be in-the-moment lucid -- whether I'm dreaming or awake, and just "make it work," as they say on Project Runway.
Fortunately, none of my jobs require that I operate heavy machinery. Rest assured -- that person with the jackhammer, cracking open the sidewalk at Broadway and 110th Street . . . is not me. It's still safe to visit New York City.
But there is a problem. It's been a while since my last post. And between business trips and work and other challenges, I'm struggling with the motivation to stitch. I haven't lost my love for stitching . . . what's missing is the discipline to concentrate and finish a project. Yes . . . it's serious.
Hi, my name is Liz. I have finishing resistance.
It would be helpful to hear from other stitchers who've been in my shoes. I need your advice. Is this normal? Does it happen to others? Has it happened to you? Will I ever get my mojo back? (I used to stitch speeches made by U.S. Presidents . . . those were the days.) Is an intervention in order? Herbs? Topical applications?
Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
