quite possibly impossible
my right brain is apparently at the wheel this week. scattered around the house are scores of unfinished letters, heaps of yarn and fiber, an abandoned spreadsheet, unsorted papers, a half-spray-painted ottoman, and scraps of lumber that had once had a purpose but no longer. scattered around my brain are incomplete sentences, circular references, and languages i don't understand. in the middle of this i have an irrepressible urge to start painting garbage cans. but i see the left brain out of the corner of my eye, with one hand on her hips and the other wagging a finger at me. it appears she's poised to take the reins next week and make me accomplish something. i hope so. both sides may have their quirks, but i couldn't live without either of them.
