I really wish I had something witty to write about at the moment.

But here is what I'm thinking about instead. The theme of have-to vs. want-to has been on my mind. I have lots of both. But it seems like the have-to's always win out. I have to get the laundry done. I have to read this stupid book for work. I have to make these phone calls. The problem with have-to's is that there's usually an or-else that follows. I have to get the laundry done or else I'll be wearing last week's socks to work tomorrow.

I want to write. I want to read (good books). I want to sew my quilt. The problem with want-to's is that they're awfully self-centered, though highly productive. But I'm also starting to think there's an unseen or-else that follow the want-to's. I want to write or else my brain may very well explode.

Well, maybe not. BUT - I'm thinking I need to re-label the have-to's and the want-to's. I have to read a good book. I want to wear clean socks tomorrow.

Hmmm... maybe I'm on to something here.
