For whatever reasons, I haven't been inspired to write. I have been involved with trying to help a friend with his psychological issues and it has been stressful and I have been anxious and not getting enough sleep. Not enough sleep for me means I can't think and that means no creativity as far as writing, for who can be creative with writing if one can not think? Artwork does not require much thought, that goes on intuition, but poetry and words, that is a different matter entirely. On top of all that it has been Passover and one must observe and attend to certain rituals and ceremonies as well for those observances too. My seders were nice, and my spiritual observances keep my spirit and mind sane. A balance of all things, yes?
My personal blog site had been suffering as well, and I just last night finally got a chance to update that and did another entry today, so I am feeling like maybe I can get into a routine of normalcy and get back into my writing. I have also decided perhaps I am more of a writer than a poet, as I had always imagined myself the poet and not so much a writer. But I love long diatribes and it seems my poetry is over-long and over-descriptive. Perhaps I have my calling backwards. Hummmm Well, topic for another evening.
I have done yet another re-write of my poem for the ekphrastic poem I wrote for my painting/decopage art piece and I'll see how it stands up in the forums. I'm not sure how well the art work will be received by my friends in my writer's group. I'm not an accomplished artist, new to this art form, but, nothing tried, nothing gained, right? What's the worst that can happen is that they say they don't like it and the piece (which I happen to love) ends up on my wall (which it was anyway) and I love it forever (yeah!). Great art is in the eye of the beholder, right? I think Picasso probably came up with that one.
Well, I hope this finds all my friends here well, healthy and happy. I'm well, healthy and relatively happy and very happy to be back in the forums. Good night all...
