    Mood: Overwhelmed

    Posted on 2017-02-09 04:37:06


       I'm so tired. Just physically and mentally exhausted, yet sleep will not come. And I can't figure out why. This is the second night in a row where I have tried for hours to sleep, but it's just not happening. My mind is exhausted, my body is so weary, but when I lay down and close my eyes, nothing happens. I lay there. My brain doesn't shut down. My body finds no relief. I have tossed and turned and I can't take it anymore. I feel like I am going crazy.

       I miss when words use to come so easily...when beautiful images crept out of my fingers like little gifts from the universe. I want to get back to that, to be able to put exactly what I'm feeling into a gorgeous phrase that will set the mind on fire.

    But I think I may have lost it...

       A friend challenged me to write him a story yesterday. This came right on the heels of writing something about my grandmother for a community I am involved in, that was celebrating amazing women in our lives. I wrote pretty hard two different times yesterday. It made me feel more myself than I have in a while. I want to keep going. But it is so much easier to get hung up.

    Busy...


    Mood: Tired

       The other night, getting my kid out of the tub, I was making a mental checklist of the things that I had accomplished, but also voicing it to anyone listening. This is how it came out:

    Okay, Dinner cooked and family fed.
    Devlin bathed and lotioned and ready for bed.

    Then I realized I was rhyming. It was crazy.

       Me: Devlin, I love you!

    Devlin: I love you too, Mama, now shut up.

    Just like a man.

    Lack of This...


    Mood: Inquisitive

    Posted on 2013-03-09 01:38:28


       This environment has changed so much since I used to frequent it. The things you share can have hundreds of views, and perhaps two comments. I try to make it a point to comment on anything that I read, but it seems most people disagree with that. Ah, well. This is for me anyway...just trying to get the creative juices flowing again so I can feel better about my wasted talents.

       Seems I am writing just a teensy bit again. Hope some good comes of it. It is a difficult task to accomplish with a three year old and a job that I despise.

       Not happy...really feeling sort of unappreciated, actually.
