Here’s a sneaky little realization that occurred to me today:
So, if I am making my dissertation my central work for the next year or so, and am going to — let’s see, now, how did I put it? — if I’m going to keep my clinical work simple, my artistic pursuits playful, and my self-employment low-key — does that mean that I can allow myself to relax about all those things? That I can explore, experiment, and just plain play with all those aspects of my work? Great galloping gophers, does this mean that the pressure is off?
You know, this just may be one of the best things that could possibly happen to me right now.
