I have two lives and I find that they often interfere with each other.
Life 1: Knitting author and teacher
Life 2: Skeptic and atheist blogger and writer
There are so many things I want to do in both areas, and I often find that they overlap in time, making it really hard for me to choose what to do. This week, for example, is the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder. James Randi is speaking at several sessions, and there are a lot of other interesting sessions scheduled, but I have to stay home and work on a knitting book that is due at the end of April and clean my house because my co-author on another knitting book is coming from England on Friday so we can write our proposal for that book and plan our research trip in Lithuania this summer.
I also will be missing TAM 6 because I’m leaving for Europe on June 20, plus I’m teaching knitting workshops at a local wool market June 12 & 13.
Anyway, that has nothing to do with anything. Just sayin’. I think maybe I need to pick one direction and stick to it after the projects I’m currently committed to are finished. Somehow I think the skeptical topics are a tiny bit more important than knitting, but they don’t seem to make it to the top of my priority list when I’m scheduling. What’s a girl to do?
