gws :: forty-two

For years I had been saying, “Someday, when I get less busy, I really want to work on the cello and see how far I can go toward becoming a good player…someday I want to help other people play stringed instruments.

But I never did get less busy and this “someday” kept disappearing into the future.

I decided that this had gone on long enough and that I had to start turning someday into today.

This means that I must plan and organize my life.
