School finished yesterday. All my reports are done and I left my room and desk spotless. Now the summer stretches before me full of potential and here I sit, at a bright yellow table in a hip independent coffee shop. My daughter is taking the SAT and I am waiting for her. I thought I’d write a bit. First I clean out my iPhoto; all the photos from a school year’s worth of adventures with remarkable students. I think about writing something meaningful, wrapping up the school year and getting literary closure. I am overwhelmed by the thought. I finish a chocolate croissant - forty minutes have passed. I clean out the e-mail – another thirty minutes taken care of. I finish my tea. TEDx Denver has finally posted the April talks on Youtube. I learn how to post Libby’s talk (the amazing woman from the S.A.M.E. Café) on my facebook wall – twenty minutes. It is simply wonderful how easy it is to distract myself with worthy online chores when I sit down to write. I have two goals this summer: write everyday and clean my house to a depth. Well, in truth, I have many goals, many, many, many; too many to accomplish in ten weeks. But my main goal is to reign in my scattered self and really accomplish these two. I know the writing is possible because I did write everyday in March. The house – well, I’ll let you know.
