Juggling is not the same as the instrumentalist, information economy "multitasking." We juggle lots of things. They might not be tasks; they might be ideas. We hope to handle contradictions and tensions, not always to force them into reductive confrontations, to allow thoughts and relationships to develop slowly over TIME. Some of the balls, we keep high in the air because we don't want to deal with them for a while. But they're there. We give each one just enough attention to keep it from falling down and bringing everything else down with it.
