suggestions on a postcard please

Last night I went to a gig at the Borderline in Soho.  It was great fun, a small and intimate venue, which was perfect for the guys and their guitars.  There is something about a harmonica that makes a person introspective and thoughtful, or is that just me?  I have been feeling somewhat lacking in motivation this week.  Maybe it’s the changing of the seasons, maybe it’s the stinking cold I seem to have caught, or perhaps it’s just the awareness that I’ve now reached the three month mark and I’m not exactly sure what I’ve accomplished with this new lifestyle of mine.  Well, the harmonica’s tune got me thinking about why I’m feeling intimidated by all the options I have, now that I have all this ‘free’ time.  The thing is, I’m not sure how to proceed and I’m making it up as I go along!  Of course this is what most of us do for at least part of our day; we go into meetings at work and blag our way through presentations with a sprinkling of knowledge, we project an image of a calm and in control person who can accomplish whatever life throws at us.  So the only difference now is that I’m out of my comfort zone and it’s me, not life, throwing the unknown into my path.
As the winter jumpers come out and the comfy boots replace my faithful Converse I shall continue checking out the new and interesting and trying to make the most out of this fantastic opportunity I have.  I know I have made the most of the gorgeous summer sunshine and been out every day with my camera – practicing & honing my skills.  Plus the experience of how much quieter and calmer it is to visit a gallery on a weekday has meant I’ve seen more art (excluding the Bowie at the V&A which was an horrendous experience).  And yet I feel like there are so many places still to explore; exhibitions I might have missed, exciting mid-week sample sales I was never before free to visit, part-time study or short courses I haven’t applied for.  I know I am so lucky to have this chance, and I don’t want to waste it.
