Allan, first of all, happy 16th anniversary!
(do math here)
Second of all, this is so perfect, and spot on. You know I’ve been experiencing the sort of writing “dry spell” — or block — or whatever — that seems like it might be more of THE END of one’s writing forever than some temporary, dull, emptiness where the ideas used to be.
This piece made me want to share what’s been going on with me, which is, I suppose, the point.
So, anyway, you made your point.
I intend to expound as soon as I get my mom’s birthday gift squared away (because of course i had to decide to do something 7 days before her birthday which required input from about 50 friends and family members, so i’m on this pretty much 24/7 until at least Wednesday! ).
I am marking this for then, thank you for waking my brain back up.
