Flying Dinosaurs and other analogies

Delivering Dinosaurs
Delivering dinosaurs for exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science. Arthur Pollock,1984.

Do you ever get so caught up in the big moments of your life and then look back on them and realize they were such a drop in the bucket?  I’ll admit that there have been a few things that have actually really been as big as flying dinosaurs over a city, but for the most part, it’s like a fly buzzing around your head…causing an intense obsession for a brief moment in time and than forgotten when it flies away.

This summer has been flying by in a blur of hard work and completed deadlines.  The next ten days are going to be interesting.  There are flies buzzing and a dinosaur is about to take flight.  Which has made me go into a bit of denial about the amount of work I have to accomplish and what will happen after the ten days are over.  I think it might be a stress defense mechanism or something.

In the next ten days will be Austin Fashion Week, The first Summer Austin Craft Riot Show…which I am not in but on the board of and the co-chair of the promotions team, so lots and lots of work is being done, and of course, the launch of the new line (!!!!).  It’s a bit overwhelming.

I do realize that with the launch of the new line  it will actually be just the beginning of a new very busy endeavor for Manic Trout but I can’t seem to wrap my head around that quite yet.   I still think of it as a fly.
