A couple of completely unrelated things found online…
Melissa Etheridge weighs in on the passing of Prop 8 in California.
Lisa said: “Jane Frank gave me a great piece of advice once. She said, ‘Lisa, just because you can do anything doesn’t mean you can do everything.’ ”
Er, are you sure? Because I want to.
But no. Especially not if you want to be good at any of those things, and I do. I want to be good at all of them. Many times when I talk to my mother, I tell her what I’ve been up to lately, and she marvels at all things I’ve done. The list usually doesn’t come close to what I want or feel I need to accomplish, and my mother is a wee bit biased, but still. To get even that much done, something must give. I can’t do everything, but I can arrange to make time for the things I consider priorities: family, work, string, writing. I don’t watch television, and movies only infrequently (much to the dismay of Nick the pop culture junkie). I don’t have children. I have a cleaning lady come in weekly.
As someone else pointed out, we all have the same 24 hours a day: Da Vinci, Shakespeare, me. It’s all in what you do with them.
