Finding Time

I haven't written a letter all week. I lament this and feel that I simply haven't had time yet I know I can steal half an hour from somewhere if I set my mind to it; but that's the problem. My mind has been greatly preoccupied with other things.  Maybe, just maybe, it's the other things I have been doing that have been stealing time from writing. Letters matter after all. Letting somebody know I'm  thinking of them is surely more important than many of those other things I tend to be distracted by. Now I don't mean to say that I haven't had important things crowding into my days, but not everything I've done this week can be rated as top priority.  It is very easy (and I KNOW I'm not the only one who does this) to fall down the internet rabbit hole following a trail of links only to emerge half an hour or even a whole hour later with nothing to show for myself but a lost hour that could have been spent writing (or reading, another worthy pursuit). So, it's time to refocus, reorient, and write. I'm the only one with the power to manage my time. Now to get offline and on to important things :o) .
