What’s Wrong with Playing Ostrich?
I’ve been practicing my ostrich impression for the last week or so — burying my head in the sand to avoid writing and other people. It’s not that I’m unsociable, it’s more like I needed time to recharge.
I don’t really get extroverts. Supposedly they feel recharged when interacting with people. How is that even possible? Wait a minute! So that’s where all my energy goes when I’m around other people. It’s you extroverts that are sucking it all away. So that means that introverts are actually powering the world of human endeavor. We go off on our own, recharge our energy, and then run across an extrovert that takes it all away. Where would the extroverts be without us? I feel a story coming on.
Anyway, It’s been really nice here in Charlotte for the past week — good weather to recharge. Also, the kind of weather that gets me thinking about springtime and the garden.
I mowed the lawn for the first time, and put out the citrus trees:
Went hiking on a greenway and saw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles after they filled up on pizza:
And hung out in the yard:
Marvelling over the daffodils:
And the first stalk of asparagus of the season:
Wow, I feel refreshed. Maybe it’s time to peek my head back out of the sand and see what’s been going on. Anyone want to buy a book?
