Life is a diverting little minx, isn’t it?
It has so many sparkly things to make you go, ooooh and ahhhh and forget what it was you walked into the room for in the first place. There are so many things one wants to achieve but never do; because the mind wanders and the eye is distracted and energies go awry. They are not necessarily huge, life altering things either, but sometimes just the simplest of actions that light up our souls or simply make us go ‘fuck yeah!’
I haven’t been writing a lot lately. In fact, I haven’t been doing much of anything lately.
Sure, i’ve been plugging away at my novel daily, ticking the day to day boxes but life has been dancing its merry dance and has left me doing very little for myself. Saucy tart. I have been distracted.
But I feel the waters have been shifting about me and that a window has opened again. Thank Bob for those windows. They do keep presenting themselves. I know not for how long they will continue to.
So I intend to sneak through this one and try, again, to take opportunity by the testicles and lead it through streets of my choosing.
I intend to write a new post here every day for the next two weeks. I want to see what it does to me, where it takes me. I’m committed. It’s been a long time since i’ve really pushed myself, seen what lies beyond the accepted stop point. What will I write about? How will it come out? Daily you have no real time to edit or reflect. You write then it’s out there. I’m looking forward to it, to flexing those particular creative muscles.
This love, this need to create; this compulsion to keep trying to keep improving and seeing what lies on the other side and the other side of that and the other side of that… it’s not something to take for granted.
I can’t seem to stop trying.
I don’t know if there’s an end to it.
In fact, I do know and there is not. Far greater than me have tried and never touched the unobtainable.
That’s why the horizon is there.
I am looking forward to trying to touch it again.
Even if only to get a little closer.
