State of Things

My creative writing practice has taken a backseat to other priorities these last few years. To be clear, I’m not complaining or feeling sorry for myself in any way. I am fortunate to have a rich and busy life both personally and professionally and writing just hasn’t found it’s way back in yet. Speaking as someone who has written poems since I was old enough to put block crayon to construction paper, I feel comfortable and confident that when the muse is ready she will forcibly and without mercy, crash her way back into my life like the Kool-Aid man. If I’m being honest, though, I do miss it. So, I figured I’d try adopting a new kind of practice and writing stream of conscious-style right here, for anyone who happens to stumble by. My website has been dormant for so long, not to mention that when I changed domain providers a few months back, I forgot to redirect the domain so it’s been a dead link since September 2022. I doubt anyone will pop by, but that’s OK. 🙂

I have no idea if I will actually follow-through with this little practice but I’m gonna give it a shot and see how it goes. If you happen to stop by and want to throw some encouragement my way, feel free to drop a comment. If meanies, creeps, bullies, or bots start chiming in, though, imma turn ’em off, so be nice.

Happy Birthday to my dad who turned 80 today! WOO HOO!

Thanks for checking in. 🙂
