Well, I've been both Frantic Friend and Helpful Acquaintance. Hopefully, I've been more of the latter than the former, but, lately, I've felt more like Frantic Friend. I do not like that feeling. I am not the adrenaline junkie who enjoys the rush of impending doom. I like calm. I like to reason things out before I jump into them. Even when it appears I've made a snap decision, it's not snap because, in all likelihood, I have considered the various possibilities previously and knew what my choice would be in a particular situation.

|It will take more than a red crate |
to organize my life!
Failure to plan is planning to fail.So, it's time to map out the year, consider the possibilities, and line up contingencies for a schedule that looks like the Tri-D Chess board from Star Trek. That means I may be away from the keyboard for a week or so, but I'll soon be back, and with a plan.

What I've not mentioned that will be integral to the plan is the quiet time that I so desperately need: reading, listening to the clock tick, watching for the afternoon hawk to come hunting, and writing.

How will I record this master plan? Paper planner? Evernote? Google calendar? All of the above?
It makes my head hurt just thinking about it. I think some chocolate is required for relief!
So, off I go to organize my life for 2013. At least, that's the plan.
How are you living your Savory life?
