The Golden Buzz of Things to Come

Buzz buzz buzz.

That's how it feels inside my head right now. Lots of things on my "Ta Da!" list (which is so much nicer and more exciting than a "To Do" list, don't you think?). Lots of new projects to map out, and some old projects to revamp. Stories to tell (on the page and on the stage). A website redesign to ponder. A photograph+words art project to inhabit and bring to light. Ebooks to create. The whispers of a new indie print publication to sort out. Things to read, emails to reply to, priorities to set. The buzz is good, invigorating even. But the buzz can also be a bit unsettling -- like too much humming inside the honeycomb of my mind.

For the next few days I'll be settling into home again after spending five days in New York City. (There's a lot of humming, thrumming, and buzz in NYC, to be sure.) I was there to participate in the grand finale of Golden Ticket, a 12-week course, led by Michelle Ward and Tanya Geisler, to help women entrepreneurs love what they do and how they do it. I plan to share more about the program and my experience with it in the coming weeks, but right now I'll just say that I've been clarifying my vision for my creative work, and I'm excited about what's to come. Buzz Buzz!

I know this all sounds like cryptic hype (buzz?) right now. Really, I just wanted to pop in here and say "hello" since I've been quiet for awhile and let you know that good stuff is on its way. No promises yet regarding timetables and all of those logistical tidbits, but stay tuned: It's going to be golden.

except that i am letting it incapacitate me, for some reason.

i have so many things i want to do and should be doing...i don't know where to start.
