Not Really a Sacrifice

The Good Hope Art Exhibit is now a month away and as I look at all the things that I want to complete for that show and the time that I have left, some anxiety is setting in. My great friend John W. has been on island now for a week and will be here for a few more days. Bob's brother Alex has also just arrived to be with us for a week. It's great to see them and to share time with them. Add to that the temptation of the many high-season activities now in full swing, and time gets tighter and tighter.

John says, "Don't worry about it, you work well under pressure." But that's just it. I don't want to do this under pressure. I don't want to be pulling all-nighters in order to complete a project. I feel that everything I do right now is creating a prototype for my work as an artist, and I don't want this prototype to be laden with stress simply because I didn't prioritize properly.

So tomorrow I'll skip the planned hike and an afternoon of live music at Rainbow Beach in order to put in a good day at the studio. I'll sacrifice some of the fun now, but I'll feel a whole lot better later!
