‘Three is too much’

This was Dr J.I.T. Russell’s response to a question I posed some years ago about his apparent ability to manage the demands of various projects concurrently.

Dr J.I.T. Russell is my father, and, I find now, that he is right and genes will out.  Three is too much.  And so, I find, is four or five.

I will be paring back on my projects eventually, but not at the moment.  I am in that mid-life stage where time seems to speed up and one must push ahead in a vain attempt to offset the effects.  In the meantime, some weeds may grow round here.  But what is a weed after all?  Merely a flower in the wrong place.
