Magpie #23



A life long reader, he had taken of late to writing. Writing down tales from his past, observations of the present and thoughts on the mysteries of life. The muse that lit his imagination's fuse has been suffocated like a fire is extinguished with a soda acid mixture. The words are there but the ideas are not......fizzled like a fire cracker dud..pfsst, gone, kaput; buried in Angela's Ashes.

Free falling for 19 months, a blink of an eye------- the net, the net, where is the net?

Perhaps the river carrying it's ships, or the train click clacking along, or the clouds, or the heron. Perhaps the sunsets? No not there, at least not yet. Trees? One would think, but no, not even there in these lifelong friends. Can the fire be relit?


Can life be renewed, inspiration rekindled?

What's this I spy: pixilated pixie dust? Maybe. Sprinkle it around and wait. No, No, don't wait:
write, WRite, WRIte, WRITE NOW; right now!

simply awesome, my dear friend!! i'm always nervous asking but this sure seems like someone i know??
i find myself saying very little for days at a time...and frustrated because of it! i want to live a life that ebbs and flows, and always has something to share...but it is not to be! i'm the one clawing at the walls of my heart/brain...searching for something that comes naturally ;)
by the way, i LOVE coming by, whether you feel inspired, or not!!

the muse can be fickle at times...i usually write anyway, based on the advice of a good friend...figuring 90% of what i will write will be junk anyway...write on!
