I have set up so many goals for myself this summer that now I sit here stuck..wondering how to begin. Do I start with my writing program which I decided to revamp for next year? Do I look into GoogleEarth, which seems to keep drawing me back? Do I set up my own wiki, since I've only participated in them, not set them up? Do I contact all my new collaborative friends and set up a conference call to discuss plans for the year?

I'm reminded of an old poem from A. A. Milne in one of the Winnie the Pooh poetry books. The Sailor gets stranded on an island and can't begin to get off because he has so many things to do that he can't decide which to do first. So in the end, he does nothing.

Perhaps I need to allow myself to have a vacation and just enjoy a few days of nothingness. Maybe that will get me moving. Any suggestions?
