Thursday ease

Cameos_081414_01

Oh but to put oneself at the mercy of coincidence and chance. It just drives me nuts.


Cameos_081414_02

I thought I would never get through hump day (shown here is what I wore yesterday, Wednesday), but I have.


Cameos_081414_03

And now, Thursday morning, I refuse to revise right away the verse I wrote in white heat two days ago. Not yet.


Cameos_081414_04

I should do myself the favor of trying to move on with something else, before returning to what I have written and rewritten countless times. Get my mind off it. Bury those lines in sand.

Then maybe one day I can unearth it once again and read that damn stanza detached.

Cameos_081414_06

You see, this is the price I pay for insisting on not to join the academe: to have so many focal points far removed from what I am writing.


Cameos_081414_07

Oh but the discipline!


Cameos_081414_08

Bite the bitter bullet of frustration and regret just to maintain rigor.


Cameos_081414_09

Dear muse and voice, don’t forsake me.


Cameos_081414_10

I am here to play your music.


Cameos_081414_11

Damned perfectionism!


Cameos_081414_12

Damned solitude. (Don’t we all belong to it?)


Cameos_081414_13

But steady now, Thursday. Help me not go crazy. Nothing is achieved in an instant.
