chronos and kairos

I need studio time desperately! Not just 10 minutes here, or a splendid 20 minutes there, I need uninterrupted hours. Right now I've settled my bum in the chair for a few while I wait to pull a quiche from the oven before heading out to clean the stalls and check on the new dairy goats; later it's a trip to a farm with big A and the kids....all things I'm happy to do. But a clock is ticking on some deadlines. There's something I've noticed about opportunity, it seems to build like a wave and when it arrives the power can only be put to use by a series of (sometimes difficult) choices. Why couldn't the art shows, the wholesale account, and the commissions have been spaced evenly over six months?

I generally employ an "irons in the fire" approach, but I have the feeling I'm going to need to make some cuts, some purposeful cuts, before the load is lighted by dropping a ball....AND remember that there's an abundance of time for the things that truly matter. Where did I read that idea put so succinctly?

Let me check...

Okay, found it.

Thanks for sharing that one, Amy!
