Ebbs and Flows


Definitely worth the read. I believe I have hit an ebb in my writing. Well, it’s either that or I just don’t give a shit about too many things that are going on right now. All that matters to me at this point is my family, mainly my relationship with my wife and my children. Everything and everybody else is not that important at the moment. And when I say that I don’t give a shit, I’m not being a malcontent, it’s just that my priorities and interests are a little different than they were before. I’m still the same ole Jimmy through and through and I’ll still luv ya tomorrow but today I’m looking at things from a different perspective….

The Daily Post

All writer’s experience ebbs and flows in their writing. In fact, the photo above is a telegram from the writer Dorothy Parker to her editor, apologizing for being unable to finish her work.

    We can’t fill our minds with the horrors of life, but give those only the little dark corner.

    Take the time to watch the National Geographic Documentary http://tvhumboldt.com/natgeo.html for starters. It’ll give you the perspective that will tip you over into the peace of mind range. 🙂

    You’re definitely not the only one feeling that way, Jimmy. I see a lot of blogs of reblogs lately, have done it myself. Wanting to let people know we still care but there are other things we care more about , that’s good. That’s life. Even schools (well, some) go on vacation in the summertime. I’ll be waiting for you when you get back…
