Through my mind's eye...

Today I'm conflicted...

The practical Norwegian-German upbringing I had is at war w/ the hippy, creative, crazy, dreamy Bohemian heritage running through my blood.

I want to be playful... but the soldiers standing on either shoulder (one Viking and one German) are telling me I need to be productive.

I want be creative... but the conserving Norwegian and the studious German rattling around right next to my creative space are yelling at me ... that I need to be planned and prepared and punctual.

Conflict, conflict...
