Time Crunch

I know that my posting has been paltry the last few months. My best time to write is in the morning or during the day, and there is very little downtime at my current job. After a day of doing menial computer tasks and staring at the screen for hours, my mind is not much better than a bowl of rice pudding. I don't want my original idea of helping to foster an online community in South Pasadena to slip away. Not that the website has done anything monumental in that regard, but sometimes a few people gathering together can have a ripple effect.

I'm not sure how many people will actually read this post. Our lives are so busy. I would actually like to meet everyone who has ever stopped by and read a post or posted a comment. What's the fun of only engaging in virtual community? I'm usually at the Farmer's Market between 6 and 6:30 if anyone would ever care to meet up.

I thought I was going to squeeze out an end-of-the-year post reflecting on what I have observed in South Pas in 2005, but due to yada-yada-yada....What I can say is this: even though South Pasadena has been talking about revitalizing the Main St. area for 20+ years, I believe that the planning and discussions which came out of the TownTalks is actually going to result in some fairly big changes in the next few years, perhaps even beginning some time this year. Only time will tell, I suppose.

If you actually have read this post, I'd be interested in knowing: what takes up most of your time?

How would one find you at the farmers' market? (Or should I email you offline?)

What takes up most of my time:

1. Work, when I'm working for other people. (I temp, so sometimes I'm working 8-5, and sometimes I have long stretches of free days.)

2. Blogging & reading blogs.

3. My relationship with my partner.

4. Taking photos.

Those are the big things I devote time to regularly.

Jill, an offline email would be the most precise way to meet up. However, I could always wear a pink carnation or a funny cap. Or Thena and I could stand near the folk singer who shouts in unknown languages.

How most of my time is spent:

1. With my wife

2. With my faith community

3. At work. (Ugh)

4. Writing songs and playing music

5. Reading

(As my lack of recent posts attests, my time devoted to blogging has taken a beating. Strangely enough, my dip in frequency of posting coincides with the commencement of my new job.)

Welcome to South Pas, Jadis. Isn't Jadis the real name of the White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia?

Work, school, and daydreaming. Sometimes all at the same time.
