Like Hamilton, there’s a million things I haven’t done

They say “Hamilton” is an amazingly mind-blowing Broadway show.

Often enough, I disagree with “they.” But in this case — holy cow “they” are right. It’s absolutely freaking ridiculous, and the songs have been stuck in my head for a week. Like:

“There’s a million things I haven’t done – just you wait.”

– Alexander Hamilton

“Why do you write like you’re running out of time?”

– Ensemble

“How lucky we are to be alive right now!”

– Eliza Hamilton

“I am the one thing in life I can control.”

– Aaron Burr

It’s all so good – and so freaking true. 

You ARE the one thing in life you can control, and if you’re like me, you have a million things you haven’t done yet. But you’re still alive, which means you still have the chance to DO them.

I’ve gotten a few things done, but so much still to go.

DONE: Write a weekly stepmomming column for the newspaper. I’ve now been doing that for 1 1/2 years – over 80 columns!

NOT DONE: Publish my first novel (and follow it up with two more). That…is presently on the back burner so I can focus on my art.

DONE: Have an art show.

NOT DONE: Have art as a steady source of income.

DONE: Set up online print-on-demand shops for mugs, purses, notebooks and more.

NOT DONE: Put together an Etsy shop of my original art pieces.



A million things I haven’t done. But just you wait. Just you wait.
