although maybe that’s not such a good idea. i’m such a bad influence.
whining about creative angst when i’m overworked. sighing in boredom, lost and flailing, when there’s free time to be found. will the tides ever match up? the tides of free time and inspiration. will they ever pull together in sync?
is it a ruse — the creative, premeditated twinkle in my eye? here to put me off course or here to guide me? something to honor or something to lose? something made of wishes? or made of promise?
are we really meant to spend our entire lifetime searching? or is it someday going to stop? or is that what i’m afraid of?
consider this…before you follow me.
Lovely post. Perhaps the searching will become less random, and more clear as we go along?
we’re meant to always be searching. that much I know is true.
surely, the tides of inspiration and free time are more in sync for you than you realize. the writing in this post alone proves it. you perfectly expressed thoughts i often have. you always do. what a gift.
and i agree with poet with a day job… always searching… good.
I think searching is part of life. At the heart of everything is a certain amount of doubt.
