A SHORTAGE OF WORDS

It was impractical…perhaps even outright delusional…to think I could find the will and/or the words to write a cheery (or depressing) post every day during this strange time. I realized last night while struggling over the most trite of sentences that I was practically out of words and what few were left I needed for the book.

ME ON A TRAIN FROM STOCKHOLM TO NARVIK, NORWAY IN THE 80S. I WAS GOING TO POST SOME WONDERFULLY INSPIRATIONAL PHOTO TONIGHT…BUT IT INSPIRES ME TO REMIND MYSELF THERE ARE STILL JOURNEYS TO TAKE SO I NEED TO STAY ALIVE!

So I’m reverting to once a week, a post full of poetic, insightful, wise, and comforting expressions for this time of woe. Of course, if such a post is ever forthcoming it will have been copied directly from world famous philosophers, thinkers, mystics, and narcissists.

Today’s another day in a world that none of us have ever before experienced. Days are so ordinary in many ways; I’ll write a little, answer some emails; eat leftover pasta for lunch, maybe I’ll clean the bathroom (or maybe not); and so on and so on… While at the same time the world–as we know it– has changed forever. Although the horrible truth is that the more of us that die, the more likely moments have been added to the life of Planet Earth.

So see you in a few days when I’ve saved up some more words.

  1. When writing becomes work, find another job. The most difficult part is starting, isn’t it? For me when I start to write something….if it does not start to flow quickly…well, then have some more coffee and do something else. So, I think that if it was an effort to post every day…go to plan B. Or Plan W…wine.
