  1. And voila! You have a post. 🙂

    I’m finding my own trips to Facebook growing shorter and shorter. Soon I’ll spend less time on it per day than I do putting on my socks!

    1. And… Voila! 🙂

      I agree re Facebook, and have lately noticed fewer of my friends making personal contributions (as opposed, say, to sharing truisms and other endlessly circulated material).

      1. I’m starting to think mastering two social media sites is the limit. Or at least it’s my limit. My blog and Twitter are where I devote my time. The rest get neglected, but I do my best.

        1. Again, I agree… I enjoy blogging (better, when I can think of material), but find other social media tough-going – even Twitter. And there are now so many different channels, no one can devote the time necessary to them all!

  2. Perfect illustration of the process:0)). I do this same thing every time I think to go paint. I so enjoyed this post – thank you!

  3. This is my life! Full stop. On all days! I don’t even have a blog! I just spend my time wondering what to do next. And making another cup of coffee….. or tea in my case 🙂

  4. Love it! There is an art to procrastination and now with several new options (umm, excuses) to add to my repertoire I too can become a Jedi Master!
