I was born late. By a couple of weeks. My due date was in April and I didn’t show up until the beginning of May – and that’s my explanation for why I’m such a procrastinator. Anything can wait with me – even being born.
Even these words here are a symbol of procrastination because I should’ve had them written a long time ago. I’ve been planning to start a blog for years, I’ve been planning to start this particular blog for a few months, but I haven’t actually gotten down to writing anything for it until now. The thing is, I like to ruminate – I like to plan and daydream and keep things in a very vague, half-developed cloud of possibility as long as I can, and I’m not even sure why. Probably it’s because I’m lazy. But I read somewhere that procrastination can be a sign of great creativity. Yeah, that sounds good, let’s go with that.
Besides being the sort of person who would rather put off till tomorrow whatever could be done today, I’m also a Renaissance Woman. I know, they don’t seem to go together. But the dictionary defines it as a woman who has a wide variety of interests and accomplishments, and while that sounds a little Jane Austenish, it’s a pretty accurate representation of me. I have a lot of interests and a fair number of accomplishments. Part of what I want to do here at TLMS is share a few of those interests, like all the knitting and crocheting projects I don’t know what else to do with, and my artwork, and my collection of Fred Astaire movies (so far I’m the only person I’ve met who likes Fred Astaire movies. Please tell me I’m not alone??). Basically I’m going to be posting about things I like, things that make my life more sweet. I hope they make yours sweeter, too.
