notes on living a life


“Writing about a writer's block is better than not writing at all” 
~ Charles Bukowski, The Last Night of the Earth Poems 

There was a time when I worked hard at "matching" my photos to my words.... I don't feel the urge to do that right now. In fact words are coming hard to me nowadays. I sit at my desk, digging deep for something worthy to say. I Google writing prompts, I look though books: anything to get the words flowing. And yet I come up empty handed. 

Words come easier when I am struggling, worried or afraid; so this must say something about my frame of mind right now. There is a hush inside of me; a contentment and calm and I really don't know how to write about it. I know there are some that would say this is a bad thing, we should never be content right? But I am going with it right now, letting it flow over me and savor it for a bit. 

It is my camera that is pulling at me hard these days. I walk with the dog in the rain, my camera tucked inside my coat. He sniffs and I notice. I notice the world around me and all its beauty and all I want to do is shoot. So I am not going to fight it. 

Today Gary will help me pull out the 20 some Christmas boxes from under the stairs and the decorating will begin. I have not decorated our home for past three years, so I am pretty excited to get those boxes out! Nothing mind blowing, but so, so good.

what will you be doing today?
