That drifting feeling hit.
I feel like my yellow inflatable raft is floating by the shore.
I can *see* things on the sand I should probably paddle to.
People I should contact, things I should write up, projects I should finish.
But I'm not paddling toward the shore. I'm swishing around in the water riding the waves and avoiding the rocks.
It's fun to play in the waves, but I'm spending most my efforts on struggles that have no bearing on life on land. I should either stop thinking about the land and focus on enjoying the waves OR I should be spending ALL my energy paddling towards shore!
Or maybe I should spend a little less time thinking about metaphors.
