My sister was teasing me the other day. The conversation went something like...
L. "How's it going?"
D. "Not bad... I'm extremely tired, work is busy. Oh, did I tell you I started a pottery class on Thursday?"
L. "Really? Wow!"
D. "Yah - it's really neat."
L. "Well, aren't you turning into quite the Renaissance Man!"
L. "First an English course, now Pottery!"
Renaissance Man. That's funny!
I found her observation rather telling. She NOTICED a change in my behaviour. Was it really all that drastic? Have I been noticeably sitting around like a lump "DOING NOTHING", hence taking a couple courses makes it APPEAR I'm all of a sudden DOING - or DOING differently?
Lately I've felt this need to DO more and THINK less. As I write this I'm thinking... (yah, go figure!) maybe here is where I can do my "thinking" and in my "real-world" time I can be "doing".
All this said, I had a chat with R. the other day. She said "But THINKING is DOING! When you're THINKING, you're pondering the possibilities of action."
Maybe my next course will be Philosophy.
