Life... is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won't be got rid of. Anita Brookner



Now, I don't like to point fingers. I've got my share of unfinished projects. There is a box full of shell pieces that are destined for a wall art mosaic as soon as I find the right frame.  I've been looking for that frame for 6 months. I have several storage tubs in my closet that if I would just unpack I could actually walk into my walk-in closet. But, I'm sorry if the procrastination kingdom has a king - I have found him.

(Overhead at a small home in Englewood)


"Look Honey! I bought a sailboat!"
"But Darling, you don't sail"
"I know, but I'm going to learn"


(Overheard at same Englewood home 1 year later)


"Sweetheart, I'm going to take the sailing lessons as soon as I fix the hole in the boat"


(Overheard yet another year later)


"My Love, I made you a new planter in the front yard!"


I drove around the block to get a second look.
