As the last day of March commences and the stormy but beautiful month of April begins, I decide I must make a change. My rhythm is off, the interior dialogue of ideas and plans that usually bothers my brain has fallen silent. I’m not sure what precipitated this change. Perhaps it’s my landing a job so far from where I thought I’d be. Perhaps it’s the excitement of finally having a real salary and money to spend on things, or the happiness of finally having weekends off. Or perhaps it’s some kind of subconscious relief, followed closely by guilt because I feel relief, that I don’t have to work my ass off now to find a writing job. Maybe it’s a mix of all that.
All I know is that my life is picking up speed. Time is flying. I haven’t written a speck of real writing since Christmas, but I’ve picked up the guitar again, and been surprised at what’s come out of my fingers. Full circle? I hope not. I want to go forwards, not back.
In any case, I’ve decided to turn this blog into a monthly one. If I feel like writing more, then I will. If I feel so inspired that I want to write three times in a week, I will. But I’m tired of pressuring myself; that’s not what writing, or any art, should be about.
So welcome to the new year of things…I hope you like it here.
