Shotgun Syndrome

Tabula Mundi Tarot ~ 4 of Wands

I completed a huge project yesterday, on a double deadline, usually when I do my best work. That shotgun to the back syndrome. Now it is 4 AM and I'm up, feeling all loose ends-ish. Wishing I had it in me to go back to sleep, but a lifetime of pre-cockcrow says that will never happen. But what about that next project?

Even in my semi-catatonic state I feel the tingle. And the call of the next potential completion. It is why we get up at all, isn't it?

  1. Vacations are a big incentive to get up. Work to pay for lovely get-a-aways.

    1. yes indeedie! We took so few vacations when we were working, maybe once every 8 or 10 years. No wonder I love retirement.

  2. You are like my daughter and husband who thrive on the excitement of finishing things at the deadline. I, on the other hand, completely freak out if things aren't done two weeks ahead of schedule. :D

    1. I love to be prepped and everything orderly, but learned early on when push comes to shove, I'm a shover

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
