I feel like a racer on the starting block, waiting for that gunshot and that gunshot ain't coming and i'm so PUMPED for it! So much needs to move forward but is stalling.
Snow getting in the way in Vermont (Nadia you know what I mean.)
Waiting to hear from colleges so that we can plan Spring break visits.
Burning with impatience for my book cover, so that I can send my novel out.
Waiting to hear from the people whose life I just adapted into a screenplay hoping that they loved it (but what if they... gasp... hated it?)
And my nose is clogged shut by a monster cold i cand breede!
Rhahh this is torture!
In an attempt to remove blockage from my life, I decided to clear feng shui, beginning with the unbelievable amount of crap accumulated under my bed.
The junk I found there was mind-boggling. There was the extended family of dust bunnies, no wonder my nose refuses to unclog, then the scrunched-up content of four boxes of kleenexes, heavy with dried-up snot, fruit of a winter's worth of colds and a spring's worth of allergies. And then, and I had to marvel at the symbolism, there, under our marital bed were enough sharp/cutting objects to shred a 20 year marriage to pieces: three kids plastic swords, an exacto knife, a board filled with dozens of pins (I use those to map out storylines), and this was not symbolically bad enough for my relationship, a huge guillotine-looking paper trimmer I did not even remember owning.
I guess in the process of making sharp and dangerous things inaccessible to small children I crafted the mother of all toxic relationship feng shui.
So now you could have a picnic under the bed it's that clean. The bunnies have found a new home in the belly of my vacuum cleaner, the kleenexes were recycled (is it morally reprehensible to put kleenexes in the recycling bin?) and the sharp things are to be moved under Brad and Angelina's bed because all that passion they are displaying is making me feel insecure. Now good Feng shui can freely flow in and out of the room. I'll let you know if things become unblocked and make a Feng Shui believer out of me.
