  •  I agree. And it's not different for me (none)
    or anyone.  Each of us have the same amount per 24 hour cycle of finite time.  How do we use it?

    I haven't been getting any reading done -- offline.  Or any significant writing done -- offline.  (My hands are always tired!)

    Instead I'm using that time to work on the campaign.

    Otherwise, all the stuff about the "many" and the "few to few" is over my head.  I've got more than enough to do just trying to keep up on a few of the numerous issues that are going on (here), and acting on those, and updating friends who haven't the same amount of time to devote to keeping up with what is going on.

    The time has flown, though.  I can't believe we're so close to the election so quickly.  Some say "time flies when your having fun."  Hell, time flies no matter what yer doing!  :|

    So I "avoid" getting overwhelmed by devoting the bulk of my time, at present, to the campaign.  Which is perhaps choosing by what I will be overwhelmed.  (Actually, it's immersion to the exclusion of almost everything else -- offline reading and writing being most important.  And I wonder where everyone else gets the time to write diaries and make them look fancy!)

    •  choosing by what I will be overwhelmed by... (none)
      Agree, and obviously our hearts are in the same arena. :)
      So my toilet has rust stains, the fridge will remain ...needing cleaning, etc., etc., I will do the Teen Center every Saturday night, and I will continue to spread the word, write letters, and poll wherever I can.

      But this thread is exemplified by the statement...

      >It is community, it is about action, it is about transforming the political system. It's through the real work of many that this will happen.<

      I am now a part of the many, with my own input.

      •  Yes! (And I had to stop and do (none)
        some of those tasks in order to avoid problems with "Dear Landlord"!)

        And: yes, you are.  :)
