The Shape of Mountains

It’s a new year but it’s also a new day by day.  I try not to shape the future but I am trying to imagine the shape of it.  It appears to be in the shape of mountains.

A mountain of ironing that will never be done; I’ve grown proud of the creases.  A mountain of washing up that demands attention when I can’t find my favourite knife or spoon or dish or a space to fit the kettle under the tap.  That last thing gets me going.  Mining the mountain to retrieve what I need and thereby obliterating it.

A mountain of works in progress; books to read; fruit to eat before they rot.  A mountain of Other Things to Do.  As long as there are other things to do I can forget the other mountains; never mind that Other Things rise into more mountains.

    Yes, indeed! I try not to get overwhelmed by my mountain of chores, but I’m not always successful. Love the hat!

  2. Yeah. Know that feeling too. Love your pics. (I moved the iron and board down to the train for sewing use only so that I never have to do any ‘normal’ ironing. It always seemed to me the most ridiculous use of my time.) :)
