Egg Hatching

Last night my friend Sarah was the facilitator of our group that meets each Wednesday. We did a lot of talking about eggs. Mainly, as metaphors.

Sometimes with creative projects you can have too many eggs you're trying to deal with at once and you MIGHT do better to just take care for one egg at a time. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" Otherwise, how can you care for them enough for them to ever hatch? And besides that, with all those eggs knocking around, a few are bound to become broken before their time.

So Sarah posed the question to all of us (and it's a good one for you to consider too!) "What egg do you intend to hatch in 2007" I'd love to hatch my new cd. I've been ready, or at least the songs have been, for months now but have had various problems, mainly with computer cliches in my studio. I've gotten frustrated enough times that I turn to other much less important projects instead. But I'd like to re-focus my energies on really taking care of this particular egg. It needs to be nurtured, cared for, loved, and made to feel important so that it will finally come on out and hatch already! I've got the time to devote to it now. I'm a little overwhelmed when I look at the mass of the project. But if I break it into little steps and give myself the time, this egg will hatch!

You're such a good egg! I hope that the CD happens soon! :-)

My egg this year will be to have an art show.
