Take Tarts

118. Take Tarts

I had a woman in one of my writing classes a number of years ago, who had a favorite saying. She said it was a West Virginia-ism. It was: Take tarts when tarts is passin’.

Lately I’ve been thinking about that saying and even following through on it a few times. I’m a great procrastinator so it’s easy for me to say, “I’ll catch that art show at a different time—after all it’s running until January 1st of next year.

But the reality is that I need to take tarts when tarts is passin’. So I’ve done the art show and now have time to do it a second time. My youngest daughter and I have established a tradition of seeing the Carol Decker show in Lafayette Village every year around the holidays. Her young ones look forward to the cookies and treats but they also carefully survey the pictures of animals to pick their favorite to show their Grandmother.

It’s not always a doing thing in my book—sometimes it’s a not-doing and hanging out with a good book and cheese and crackers—that’s pretty tart-ish I’d say.

So I’m looking at each day and I’m planning for the week, and writing things down for the month, to see where the tarts are in my life and making sure that I don’t let them pass by.
