Man, I have been suffering. Suffering! I can’t concentrate; I can’t focus. I can’t write a darn thing. I had a beautiful first line to a story and then…nada.
Too much pressure, perhaps? High expectations? I’m not sure, but it’s a miserable thing. Generally I give myself a little break and the world opens up for me again. But this time I scouted around on the Internet for something to nourish my brain, and I found it. A beautiful, serene, ephemeral picture. First line + picture = MAGIC. I’m so happy. I feel whole again.
Also, a wombat emailed me free tickets to Our Lady Peace next week. My first thought was, “Aw, man, I can’t go!” because the free concerts are usually held so late that I can’t snag a sitter. But this time? Super score! I can’t wait to tell my husband that we’re going. It’ll be fun.
Their song “Clumsy” was pretty much my theme during my freshman year of college. I had the words “Hide the telephone in case you realize that sometimes you’re just not okay” written on my calendar. Because I was all strong in the face of my teenage suffering, and stuff. Whatever.
Have a good one, you guys.
