As anyone who has even half paid attention to this stagnant blog, or my somewhat more active Twitter feed (@RickBrannan if you’re interested) I spent a large chunk of my free time over the past 18 months working on the text of the Apostolic Fathers. (http://bit.ly/ApFthInt for more info on that, last time I’ll link to it on this post).

But that’s “in the can” and I’ve noticed something since I’ve been done. For 18 months, I haven’t had to ask myself “what will I study?” or “what am I going to work on this morning?” While I do have another project in the works (no info on that at present, sorry) I find it difficult to get my attention re-focused in the mornings. For the longest time, I just had to wake up and dig in where I left off.

My times studying had a focus. I had an anchor. It was almost easy.

Now I’ve got a few different things I’m thinking about pursuing, and I find myself floating free. And it is disconcerting. Not only that, it is difficult to get the focus back.

I hope to do some reading in the mornings, and might actually blog a bit again (either here, or on http://www.PastoralEpistles.com). I expect to be “floating” a bit, at least until I cast the anchor and can focus again on some task for awhile.
