here’s where i got lost along the way: the full plate thing? It’s nearly 3am this morning and I just got finished eating. i won’t say what…, but the food pyramid is out, the USDA’s MyPlate is in! I’m not sure if connecting the dots between my eating a certain vegetable and a certain part of a certain food group this early makes it clear, but then i thought of the hiatus thing.
since a few great people i know (including my children, Ms. S.R. and Ms. C.) keep asking me when am i going back to my long-term writing post, i realized that i can’t stay on hiatus forever, and what they really keep asking is when am i going back to something that gives me a great source of peace…
i think they either know me a little too well or i keep talking about the great return…
the point: i had a full plate. my plate was running over and spilling onto the floor. i had to scape off a few things so that i could hold onto my plate (and sanity) without slipping on the stuff that had spilled onto the floor.
i guess the other point is: we have to know when we’re on the verge of a major meltdown or breakdown and if we cant figure it out, that’s where we have to trust those great people in our lives to put us back in order.
i guess the point of all the points is: i just realized that now i need a hiatus from my hiatus… for every one thing i scraped off my plate, i’ve piled on more stuff.
i’m typing this, but soon after: i’m planning to pile on more of that certain vegetable with an extra side of that certain part of a certain food group.
