As is the case more than not, I woke this morning with a song in my head. Scar Tissue. And so I went about my business. You know, morning “ritual” stuff. I apparently had the house to myself all night and so it was quiet. Still in solitude, I walked downstairs to put on the coffee, then back upstairs to activate the way back machine. As I basked in the morning’s solitude, many words lay before me like the highway in this song’s vid. Yet, as I sit now, they might as well be out there…in the open desert, blowing here, there… scattered. Intact but separated.
So is the nature of writing for me lately. It exists in my head. Only. Translation to the hard copy? Seem to be having ongoing issues. What else is new? Hm…hey! Here’s one thing – I’m on the mend, with voice back (more or less). 2 weeks ago today, I set out on a vacation journey to my homeland. Unbeknownest to me, I would get the tip off 10 hours later that maybe, just maybe, my body was trying to get sick. Dammit! Talk about Bad Timing.
….later this same morning….distraction….words?…. lost in music. How did I get so distracted by the YouTube?! Where are the desert words that were burning earlier? They were devoured by this and how I loved playing this song on bass. On the Thunderbird… succumbing now to the past…. feeling….the past….feeling myself consumed in the playing of this song, my version….
And this is how a clark gets to emotional content….unintentionally, without meaning to evoking those “things” that trigger tears of joy or pangs of sadness. Simple memory of a moment in time can be the flip of the switch that releases emotion and is suddenly available for a clark to use…
I’m thankful for a safe, albeit extra long return trip from R.I. last week.
I’m thankful for the ability to work from home. The “illness” got the best of me this week and so it happened I stayed home. Didn’t rest! I worked. While not contributing to my recovery, it was a big help. Deadlines never get sick lol.
I’m thankful for the sun and blue sky today. Yippee! I don’t really feel like venturing too far from bed, but you know what? I probably will. Just not yet 🙂
I’m thankful to be a help on Clark’s new serial story, Blogdominion.
I’m thankful to know so many excellent writers out in the blogosphere.
I’m thankful the Friday night vid chats have started up again. Just sorry I didn’t make it at at the beginning of last night’s chat!
I’m thankful Dyanne (sister separated at birth!) showed up at last night’s chat although I didn’t have much of a chance to talk to her. Voice will be better next time 🙂
I’m thankful my sister-in-law met my brother.
I’m thankful for Rule # 782.56 in the SBOR/BOSR. You’re going to have to ask Ivy. She’s the Keeper of the Book.
I am thankful for this day. Another day. My only day.
Be well my friends. Be present. Relax. Enjoy. Today is yours.
