I have reached out to friends through the usual social media and emails because I need to do something to shift the predictability of my life. I may proceed with my thoughts of moving to Tucson, but as a wise friend told me; I'd better be certain I am not acting frivolously. What can I do there that I can't do here? Will people be as busy with their own lives there as my folks have been busy with theirs here?
So I will take my time with that venture. In the meantime, I'll continue reading and restart the writings I've long left undone.
Interestingly, a colleague is working on a paper and I shared some material that may or may not be useful to him. However, I've started rethinking what my own project will be.
Somehow I don't feel as compelled to catch up and compete with others as before. I've accepted my abilities and do not feel impelled to do things out of my sphere of interest and abilities. I suppose this is a measure of some growth.
Now on to my task for today and I'll see what I get done.
