Yeah I have major commitment issues. There, I said it. So how could a woman whose been with her boyfriend for 7 years have commitment issues? Ha. Really it thankfully doesn’t apply to my lovely Earl. Only everything else in my life, be it setting up to cook a meal or sit down to read a book. My post is about the latter. Once again I will vow, like I have a million times before to a million simply goals that I will accomplish what I set out to do. At this point my aspirations are not very high, I learned to not get carried away in these matters.
So anywho, I am journeying south to Las Vegas to help my Mom, Becky Lanktree of the ever increasing and popular Art Under Glass to help with a large order from one of her whole sellers. And I shall bring with me the one book I have been giving guilty goo goo eyes at for the past 6 months, Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It’s a wonderful story so far and surprisingly relevant given that fact the it was authored in the Russian literary journal, The Russian Messenger in twelve monthly installments during 1866. So my point, it’s certainly not a hard read, I’ve really no excuse for not having devoured it by now. This is disconcerting to me because reading books has always been my failsafe when I feel non creative or disconnected in a general sort of way. So like I said I wont finish it in the week or so I am down there but my goal is simply this: to at or around bedtime, read be it a few pages or blast through chapters of my book. Yep thats it. Thats all I want to do. It doesn’t seem like much for normally ambitious people but trust me, it’s a stretch for me. lol.
So I suppose thats it, wish me luck on my silly endevour and also send some love my Mom’s way on her neglected blog www.artunderglass.net/blog , she’s going to need it to complete this order on time.
With much love,
