My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

0 Should I be disappointed with myself?

April is basically half over and what do I have to show for it?  One measly little poem.  I had every intention to reinstate myself during National Poetry Month with a poem-a-day.  I managed it last year--and then some.  But I am still not quite ready to find my way back to my creative half.  I prefer wallowing apparently. 

I have started reading again.  It has been a long time since I have done that.  Between being too busy, no longer having the summers to read, never really taking a vacation, and lack of motivation to pick up a book (lot easier to pick up the remote--plus I did focus alot over the past couple of years on my writing), I have not really cracked open a book for the simple joy of escaping into another world.  My that is just what I need...a little escape from myself.

I have been thinking about writing.  Every once in awhile I hope on here--a place I have seem to have deserted--wanting to writing, trying to write, or talking about trying and wanting to write.  In thinking back, this break is really not all that unusual.  If I look back over my writings, I can find long gaps in the timeline...years even.  Maybe I've just hit one of those plataus.  Who knows.  But if the past has anything to say, I will find my way back.  The only real question is when.
