I'm doing too many things.

I know it doesn't seem like it. I know that, on an individual level, I probably haven't seen you in a month. Maybe even 2 months. MAYBE I'VE NEVER EVEN MET YOU, READER. Which means that I really, really owe you a coffee date.

Except that the only efficient way to do that would be to rent out a damn coffee house for a straight week and gather you all there.

Do not confuse this with bragging about the number of people I enjoy having coffee with. This is a post about what it's like to live as someone who is very curious about the world and INTO EVERYTHING. You're learning to knit? I'm jealous! Making homemade candy? Making dry wall? No fair! Let's book an evening between 6:45 and 7:07 to discuss how to can peaches.

Yep, that's how it is chez moi. And something has to change.

I cannot live in the busiest city in the world and have the busiest schedule. Two busys do not a happy girl make. So if I cannot live in the forests of Portland and maintain an active social life, I am going to have to hermit it up in New York City.

I realize I write this post every 6 weeks or so. Dramatic blogging activity calls for drastic measures. I hereby proclaim Fall 2010 closed for business. This is ironic, as my weekends are booked through late October. But unless I spontaneously decide to make dinner plans, I'll see you all after Christmas.

In the meantime? You can email me! You can write me a letter. You can comment on this blog (which will remain OPEN for business). You can text me or send me funny photos of your cat. We just cannot put something on the calendar until January.

I want to do some Yoga, but first see a doctor about why I have Yoga problems. I want to investigate the possibility of getting another cat. I want to spend quiet time in my apartment. I want to cook 10 different soups by Christmas. And I want to wander New York more, as the breeze gets colder and the leaves get all crackly.

So let's get spacious about our socialness! Write me a letter and I'll keep you in the loop.
