Time is a harsh mistress. She has wooed six weeks away from me without much more that a bat of her eyelashes and a wave of her dainty handkerchief. What’s more, she has given me glimpses of what she is doing with my time. She has stuffed it. Crammed it full of all kinds of goodies and now it looks like she is handing it back to me to sort it out. All in one lump sum.
I think she believes she can overburden me with this dark joke she has played, but maybe what she doesn’t know is that I’ve been wise to her game. She thinks she has me down, but I think the fun is just beginning. I am finding fun in every step I take, even in those times that make me want to scream and give it all up.
I could give a long accounting of the activities that time has laid on me in six short weeks, or I could just talk about one. Not that everything I have my fingers in is very important to me, some have the weight of my life in them, but there is the one activity that seems to bring a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of working all the others. There is that one that I openly welcome as relaxation, even if it means work.
The Senior Squids are like my hearth where I can huddle next to the fire with a warn cup of coffee. The brainchild of lensmaster LindaJM, the Senior Squids group has a roster of some of the best that Squidoo has to offer. The weekly lens challenges are incredibly fun and produce lenses that every Squid can use as shining examples of what to strive for in lens crafting. I am humbled to be part of the group that has set a very high bar of excellence, and I hope to reach that bar, if by no other means, association.

Bring it on Ms. Time, I’m wise to your charms.
