Busy Sunday

I am exhausted.  Actually my brain is exhausted.  I’m sure all of you can identify with struggling to get something right, and the learning curve is way over your head, but you persevere anyway because that’s the way you are wired.  Especially if you are a weaver.  Even if someone told you you couldn’t do it, all’s the more reason to make it work!

I know building this website, and learning the software isn’t quite what I wanted to talk about in this blog, I really want to be making the Arctic Jacket, consider this my day job at the moment, and I’m working on this huge assignment, well into the night,  until my eyes just can’t stare at the computer screen anymore.  I’m getting close.  I actually have the templates down, after many fits and starts.  I think I have something and when I try it out in Firefox, my browser of choice, I get something different.  I fix that and try it out in Explorer, and a completely different thing happens.  So I adjust for that.  But I’m happy with that I finally have so far, and I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I took a happy break this afternoon, spotaneously, my husband and daughter and I went online and got tickets for the Broadway tour of Rent, which was being performed this weekend at the NJ Performing Arts Center in Newark.  Almost all of the cast members were straight from the Broadway production, and three of them, including the two male leads, were part of the original Broadway cast that opened 13 years ago.  To say that this was an amazing production would be an understatement.  If you live in NJ, and have never been to the PAC in Newark, the venue is spectacular.  And the show was beautiful, inspiring, powerful, amazing, and the message one we can live with daily.  The show’s central theme is about living in the moment, because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, to seize the moment, and live in the day, don’t look back, and don’t look ahead.  That last part is nearly impossible for me, because I always have one eye on the to-do list, at the deadlines carefully marked out, and keeping my head above water.  I have a lot to learn…
