Writer's Block

I haven't written in a while. Not that I don't have anything to write about. On the contrary, a lot has been going on in this head of mine. Like freshly poured wine, the thoughts just needed time to breathe. I let them chill and always end up questioning the wisdom of writing about them.

Two things that influenced this present state of "creative silence":

1) This song which I happen to listen to by chance. I was synching up songs from Trish's CDs and this was in it. I neither know the title nor the singer but as soon as I heard the first lines, I was hooked..."Close my eyes. Let the whole thing pass me by. There is no time to waste asking why."

I guess.... No sense asking why. No sense writing about things that should not matter anymore. No sense trying to capture everything with words as they could not encompass the depth of what is felt. As Dido would say, I hold my tongue...(or in this case, my pen...)

2) Conversations with Tegs - a new found friend, ally, "avid fan", "upper" who talks some sense and most importantly listens... You're right... we'll just let this slide... "Hush, hush".

I guess... I will be writing some prose and poetry one day. Just not today...
