Things Done but Left Undone

Opened a bookstore…
but haven’t posted the thousands of vintage books I adore.

Deconstructed my bathroom…
didn‘t put it back together yet. 
Released hundreds of ladybugs to police my garden
but the garden has fallen into disrepair.
Moved my bookstore to a new location…
still don’t have all the fixtures up after 8 months.
Wrote the first 75% of three novels…
but not the last 25.
(This is my plot bunny, Fred. He works overtime.)
Called home my fierce protective nature
but haven’t integrated my tiger.
Built my neighbor a small deck and steps
never sealed the wood. 
Designed a new store website…
haven’t created it.
Refinishing a Drexel coffee table…
 still needs two coats of tung oil.
Consented to a temporary job…
haven’t quit the goofy thing.
Started editing a book on art therapy…
haven’t done the final polish.
Organized a book on writing…
my friend decided not to write it.
Sent my mystery novel out to an agent…
once. 
 Wrote a comic book and got it half-illustrated…
but not published.

Created a writing blog...
not posted on it for two years.

Studied shamanism for two years…
have yet to journey for anyone but me.
 
My new watchword should be FINISH.
