Again, I find myself in hyperdrive with too much for one person to do as quickly as it demands to be done. Everything is raining down all at once and I long to simply catch up with all of my work and have the peace of mind necessary to reflect and determine the most efficient way to sucessfully execute the next course of action. I am simultaneously wearing 4 “hats ” in my life now and when everything seems like it is demanding of my attention as it is now, I begin to feel inadequate and I strive even harder to be “SUPERWOMAN” who can do it all and do it with style , grace, and indeed sensuality. Overfunctioning. This is what women are today. We are simultaneously career professionals and lovers and mothers and home makers and gardeners and involved with our communities and friends. We are athletic and artistic and well read. We hold our own in conversations about business and art, sports and wines, travel and world events. We know the latest fashion and designers. We can handle a pickup and a sports car, SUV and motorcycle, racing bike, and surfboard, stilettos and doc martens… We take out the trash and pour the wine. We mow the lawn and paint the ceiling turquoise. Our dressing room holds La Perla and Fruit of the Loom, Badgley Mischka and Nike. We cuss at other drivers then wipe the sweat from our eyes as we do Bikram hot yoga. We meditate , then levitate to The Black Album. . . To be continued : WOMAN 2005.
